Combine oil and sugar in a medium pot. Stir over high heat until brown. DO NOT LET SUGAR BURN!
Add water. It will splatter, so first add 1 cup, clamp lid down quickly, then add rest.
Add salt and pepper and bring to boil. Add noodles, remove from fire, and stir until liquid is absorbed. This will take about ten minutes.
Transfer to 9×13″ baking pan or large pie pan and bake 40 minutes in a pre-heated 350 °F oven.
