Georgia, I'm with you there. I always salt my meats and I am also a big believer in salting in layers and peppering, also. Only thing I don't salt are carrots...I always put sugar in the water when cooking.

When I do steaks on the grill, I always salt and pepper before cooking. Don't necessarily do that with other meat, but I do steak. I thought that was the way you were supposed to do it..

salt draws out the moisture from meats... so if you salt meat first, it will get a good outside crust, to keep the rest inside of the meat juicer...

My guess would be 4 cups....I think it might be a typo.

Dang!! That's a lot of noodles. I didn't proof-read. Let's see....28 oz.....that would be probably 2 pkg. noodles. That's still a lot of noodles.
Perhaps they meant 1/4 cup?? I'll check it out and get back to you.....

I just checked out the reviews (7) and not one of them mentioned too many noodles. What's with that?? And every review was positive. Don't know....I guess you'll have to wing it. Personally, I think 1- 28 oz. pkg. of noodles seems excessive. But, that's all I'd use....not an ounce more.
Good Luck!

Is there such a thing as a 28 oz package of noodles??? Still seems like an awful lot.

It does say the recipe is for 14 servings... so 2 oz. noodles each serving...
