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!

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.

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.

Cook noodles then stir fry with fresh green beans and carrots. Add 1/2 flavor packet for low salt. Now add one large Tbsp. peanut butter and some hot sauce to taste.
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.
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.
This is a quick tip on how to make ramen in a bowl. Ramen is already a quick and easy meal but by making it in a bowl, you don't even have to dirty a pot.
Dress up ramen noodle soup in a healthy, delicious way! Place ramen noodle soup in a bowl, just cover with water, and add your favorite greens (I especially love mustard greens).
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.
I wanted a fancy Chinese meal cheap so I created it!
This is a guide about ramen tuna salad recipe. Add tuna to ramen noodles for a different tuna salad.
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.
Chop cabbage and green onions and mix together. Refrigerate. Melt margarine in 9x13 inch pan. Add almonds, sunflower seeds and Ramen noodles that have been broken in small pieces.
This recipe can be made in twenty minutes and can be varied nicely.
This is how I've been eating my ramen since I was a little girl.
Mix the slaw, chopped onions, almonds, sunflower seeds and the ramen noodles into a bowl.
My husband and I make "must-go" ramen frequently. Little bits of this and that get tossed into the water to cook and once everything is tender, we stir in the noodles and flavor packet.
Ramen noodles and their flavor packets can combine with cheese, sour cream, chilies, olives and pimientos to make an inexpensive casserole.
This is a good pot luck dish, very delicious and refreshing. I knew it must be special when men ask for the recipe.
Place noodles in a saucepan filled with boiling water, reserving the seasoning packet. Cook until tender, and drain. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and seasoning packets from the noodles, ( I only use one).
In a large skillet, brown ground beef over medium heat 10 to 12 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up into 3/4 inch pieces. Remove with slotted spoon, pour off drippings.
It tastes wonderful either way. Everyone that has tasted this loves it. It takes more time to tell how to make it than it does to do it!

I have high blood pressure, so I can't have lots of salt. I like ramen noodles plus they're cheap, but I can't have all that sodium. Is there any way to make ramen noodles taste great with out using the salty seasoning? Thanks.
I occasionally use Ramen Noodles for a quick lunch, but never use the seasoning packet, for the same reason stated here. I cook them as directed, then drain off the cooking water, and add a little canola oil and parmesan cheese, or mix in about 1/2 cup of Salsa, especially good with fresh salsa. Veggies also add a lot of flavor.

I am looking for the recipe from Campbell's Quick And Easy cookbook using Top Ramen and beef plus some other ingredients. Thanks!

I have a recipe very similar that takes hamburger. I would think you could just use this one and throw in some browned ground beef.
There is a recipe called roasted chicken ramen soup out there. I can't find mine so if any one has a recipe please post it. Thanks.
