Super easy and cheap, this meal is great for anyone trying to eat on a budget, and sometimes just when the craving hits! I grew up eating these as my parents made them a lot when they were newly married and it just stuck. Probably one of the first meals I learned to make on my own!

Can frozen spinach be used or does it have to be fresh?
Does everyone like long stringy Ramen noodles? I don't, so I pulverize them (before cooking) in a plastic baggy (no spill) by smushing them with a glass-pint canning jar filled with whatever. After cooking, they are very easy to eat with a spoon - no ridiculous and complicated "twinings" on a fork; leave that to native Italians. Carpenters needn't waste valuable time during our very short lunch periods.

I'm half-Japanese, and grew up with ramen. To me (and my family) it's crazy to eat ramen with a spoon. I use chop sticks, and there is no twirling involved. :-) My daughter is learning, but I make sure she has a fork, in case she's having too...
Per serving: I take 3/4 cup chopped broccoli (fresh or frozen, cooked), crumbled fried bacon (1-2 strips), and mix with cooked ramen noodles. Add a bit of butter and a tiny bit of the flavoring packet that comes with the noodles (chicken, mushroom, beef or pork tend to work best) and you have a great tasting lunch or side dish.

This sounds wonderful! Not being the best cook on earth I have this magical measuring standard called "dump it in" and my bacon is measured by "bunch a strips". I do intend to try this. Thanks.

We love canned chicken noodle soup but always seem to have more broth than noodles. My husband got the idea to add ramen noodles to the soup and it satisfies the desire for more noodles and makes a nice lunch.
I like to make chicken flavored Ramen noodles and add sliced cooked carrots in to it. I buy a can of Libby's sliced carrots and just add some to the bottom of the bowl of noodles. It makes a great lunch and is another way to get your kids to eat more veggies.

Ramen noodles make a great replacement for spaghetti, if you have extra sauce to use up. Just fix according to package directions and drain (don't use seasoning packet). It makes about enough for 2 servings.

Almost everyone has a can of some sort of condensed soup lurking in the cupboard and a pack of Ramen noodles, add a bit of leftover cooked chicken, diced ham, or crumbled bacon, and lunch is on the way.
