“A favorite lunch dish at our house. I started with Debbwl's Toasted Pasta and made some adjustments to suit our tastes. We think it tastes very similar to spaghettios. Stewed tomatoes with sugar is necessary for the slightly sweet taste - if you substitute diced tomatoes, add a bit of sugar. I usually buy fideo in the ethnic food section (it's a popular pasta in Mexico). I have also substituted the tiny ABC pastas, but they take just a bit longer to cook.”

Directions

  1. In a non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium to medium-high heat. Add the fideo and fry until golden brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. If you don't like chunky tomatoes - pulse in food processor until they are of desired consistency.
  3. In same pan bring tomatoes, water and salt to a boil.
  4. Return pasta to pan with boiling tomatoes. Simmer, partially covered, for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep noodles from sticking. It's done when liquid is absorbed and pasta is tender.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in grated parmesan.
  6. Cover and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
