Answer:

It is countable.

Explanation:

Noodles can be referred to in both the singular form (the noodle) and the plural form (the noodles).

Examples in the singular form, which is less common:

  • After eating one more noodle, I felt full.
  • I split the dry noodle into two before putting it in the pot.
  • The noodle fell off my plate.
  • The dogs in "Lady and the Tramp" kissed thanks to a single noodle.

Examples in the plural form:

  • I like my spaghetti noodles on the harder side.
  • I made instant noodles as a snack last night.
  • Noodles are typically made of wheat.
  • Which do you prefer: noodles or rice?
