Gently drop the noodles gently into the boiling water. Be careful not to splash the boiling water on yourself. Do not crowd the water with the noodles. Let cook for a few minutes until the noodles rise. I usually let them stay in the water a bit longer to make sure they are cooked. With a big enough pot, you should not have a crowding problem. When cooked, empty the noodles in a colander that is placed in the sink. You can run cold water over the noodles to cool them.
