Hack Your Next Meal With These Simple Noodle Jar Recipes
We’ve been getting tons of recipe inspo from TikTok lately. We’re talking about everything from butter boards to rat snacks, and as much as we enjoy making a beautiful meal, sometimes we need a quick how-to for an easy lunch that’s no-sweat to prep and that we actually want to eat. These noodle jar recipes can be made in a jiffy, especially if you already have mason jars on hand (which, after years of mason jar DIYs, don’t we all?).
Noodle jars are a great chance to experiment and try different kinds of noodles. But perhaps the best part is that the cooking and eating uses the same dish, so it cuts down on cleanup. We see no downsides. Keep reading for delicious noodle jar recipes that the whole family will want to try.
