Why do I recommend 9 ounces of rice noodles, yet only 6 ounces of wheat noodles?
Rice noodles do not expand when they are boiled. Wheat noodles do expand when they are boiled, so if you use rice noodles, then you do need to use 9 ounces. Of course, you may try it with 8 ounces of rice noodles since they are packaged in 8 ounce boxes.
I recently tried this with corn noodles. I used 8 ounces of corn noodles. Corn noodles expand when boiled and so 8 ounces of corn noodles seemed like too much.
The recipe calls for a meat based canned spaghetti sauce. Using a canned sauce is merely a time saver. If you would prefer a homemade sauce, use the sauce portion of Spaghetti Pie I and add around 45 minutes to the total time for this dish.
Tip: Use 1/2 lb. ground beef and 1/2 lb high quality sausage instead of one or the other.
