my mom's mom..nanny nell,used to make this,as did my mom,and her 2 sisters..my nanny is gone as are my 2 aunts..my mom and i just smile and think of them all when we share a "pot of noodles" and a bologna sandwhich..
in a med to lg pot add water to about 3/4 full. bring to boil. add tblspn. veg oil. bring to boil.add noodle choice from above. add salt. cook for aprox 10 mins. reduce to simmer. add tomato sauce 1 can at a time, until you like the flavor, add pepper. cover. check aprox. 5 to 7 mins for thickening.stir.then taste. add more salt and or pepper if needed.re-c0ver. repeat stirring and tasting until its just right.. then turn off stove. remove from burner. let sit aprox 5 mins uncover, stir,put in a bowl. while it's cooling, fix your bologna sandwhich..take bowl of noodles and bologna sandwhich to table and EAT!
sometimes, if we didn't want the bologna sandwhich, we would eat the noodles with saltine crackers (most of the time the crackers had miricle whip smeared all over it..YUMMMM) don't say ewwww until you've tried it.. its good!
