“Have no idea were this came from as I have been making for so many years. This is an inexpensive side dish, that can easily be made into a main dish by topping with precooked chicken fillets, and sliced mozzarella, and then baked. The toasting of the Fideo is really what makes this dish. * Post script: This recipe does call for a lot of olive oil which can be cut down, but keep in mind that you need a fair amount to fry the noodles and give them that wonderful toasted taste.”

Directions

  1. Pan-fry the coils in oil until golden brown, remove from pan and set aside.
  2. In original pan bring tomatoes, water and salt to a boil.
  3. Return pasta to pan with boiling tomatoes. Simmer, semi covered, for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally with a fork to separate coils and keep noodles from sticking. Liquid should be absorbed and pasta tender.
  4. Remove from heat, cover and let sit 10 minutes before serving.
