A noodle is a type of food made from unleavened dough that is cooked in a boiling liquid. Depending upon the type, noodles may be dried or refrigerated before cooking. The word derives from the German Nudel (noodle)[1] and may be related to the Latin word nodus (knot)[citation needed]. In American English, noodles is a generic term for unleavened dough made from many types of ingredients. Noodles exist in an abundance of shapes and sizes.

In 2005, Chinese archaeologists claimed to have found the oldest noodles yet discovered were found at Qinghai.[2][3] This find, however, is disputed by many experts who suspect its authenticity.[4] Chinese archaeologists claim the evidence disintegrated shortly after discovery, making the claim unverifiable. Tarim Basin, a desert region in Central Asia and currently part of China's Xinjiang Autonomous province, has been suggested as the likely place of origin of noodles, where it is the staple food of Central Asians in the region.
