I was watching the Food Network today and saw a plate of spaghetti with a simple tomato sauce, you know the kind where you just toss it all together and it's intended to be more of a side dish than the entree. And it occurred to me that I had just enough leftover homemade tomato sauce in the fridge to make some "ramen" spaghetti. Being a lover of spaghetti this is one of my favorite things to make when I'm home alone. I cook the noodles for the required 3 minutes, drain them and top with sauce that I've nuked in the microwave. The seasoning packet gets added to my collection in a zip-loc bag in the pantry. The only thing it needs now is a bit of salt, pepper, garlic powder and some grated parmesan cheese. Yum!
Well then it occurred to me that chicken flavor ramen cooked per directions and actually using the flavor packet would be good with some frozen peas tossed in while it's boiling and then drain it at the end. I think this would be a good side dish.
Does anyone have any creative ideas for using ramen noodles?
