If you can't remember how or this is your first time doing Meals In A Jar click here Meals In A Jar Assembly to go back and learn 

Instructions on cooking the meals in a jar

(a good idea would be to put the instructions on the jar)

In a sauce pan add 3 1/2 Cups of water with the contents of the jar ( don't forget to remove oxygen pac), On medium/high heat. Stir well. Cook until sauces thickens, and noodles are done, stirring occasionally, about 15 to 20 min. The sauce will thicken more once removed from the heat. 

After feeding this to my kids my little girl shouts " Holy Cow this is better than I thought!" May you all get the same reaction, because it truly is tasty.
