I have a recipe for Asian beef noodles that I want to try that calls for ramen style noodles. I have angelhair pasta noodles already. Will that be an okay substitute?

Thanks! I thought it should work but since I don't know how they are different I was a bit hesitant. Since they are a major ingredient, I wanted to be sure.

I saw a post somewhere about adding baking soda to pasta water thereby giving it the bouncy sort of chewiness of ramen. Think they also said to rinse after cooking to rid the soda taste.

This is a great tip! Has anyone tried doing this? Does it actually work?
