Ingredients (5)

  • 1 can condensed cream soup (your choice)
  • 1 canful of water
  • 2 packages of Ramen noodles
  • 1 can chunk light tuna (optional)
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese (optional)

This recipe actually comes from spending weekends with my dad. We were always inventing or discovering interesting foods that we could easily prepare together with our sum total lack of culinary skills. The following is the refined, ultimate version of the dish

Instructions

  1. 1Dump soup guts and water into a medium-small pot.
  2. 2Open the Ramen packages, remove the flavourings, then crunch the noodles into tiny bits. Dump these in the pot with the soup and stir. The noodly bits will help blend the soup concentrate and water into a homogenous mass.
  3. 3Crank up the heat to medium or slightly below. Keep an eye on the stuff; stir it regularly, and make sure it doesn’t boil too much. Taste test the pasta after 2-3 minutes of boiling. If you’re making anything to go with, like a grilled cheese sandwich, take the soup off the heat while the noodles still have a bit of backbone, and keep the lid on. The noodles will soften up, and the soup won’t scorch.
  4. 4Crack open a can of tuna and/or whip in some grated cheese, depending on what flavour of soup you use, and your personal taste. I prefer just cheese in tomato soup, but both in cream of mushroom.
