I am trying to use the cheapest of materials that will fill me up.  I love ramen, and it's super cheap.  So what are your favorite recipes using ramen as the main ingredient?  Even better if you have several recipes that use basically the same ingredients put together in new and exciting ways. 

I look forward to some good eating.

i saw this and it made me laugh. there have been soooo many times in my life that i have eaten nothing but ramen for like weeks. lol. so, i feel your pain. but, fear not! it doesn't have to be painful. here are a few of the things i like to do with ramen.

ramen stir fry.... take the ramen, boil them up and drain all the water... take some cheapo frozen veggies (a big bag of mixed ones is like a couple bucks and it will last a while) put it all in a skillet. heat it all up and put some soy sauce on there. you can mix in some cheap krab meat (you know, the fake stuff...which is also cheap) or some cut up chicken nuggets.

ramen with cheese.... this is my husband's favorite. just cook the noodles, drain them, add a couple slices of cheap american cheese and salt/pepper/garlic/etc to taste. you could mix in ham chunks with this one.

ramen chicken noodle... boil the noodles, don't drain this time. add some mixed veggies, and add some of the chicken that comes in the packs that are diced and ready for salads in the refrigerated section. season it up to taste.

that's just a few of the things i do with them. i love ramen noodles though. i eat them even when i'm not broke. they are cheap, quick, and tasty if you fix them right. i think we are all pretty much broke right now, though. milk costs more than gas in most places. food is way too expensive right now. good luck, and i hope this helps a little!

Ramen (ラーメン or 拉麺, rāmen?, IPA: ['ɺa:meɴ], listen (helpinfo)) is a Japanese dish of noodles served in broth that originated in China. It tends to be served in a meat-based broth, and uses toppings such as sliced pork (チャーシュー, chāshū?), dried seaweed (海苔, nori?), kamaboko, green onions, and even corn. Almost every locality or prefecture in Japan has its own variation of ramen, from the tonkotsu ramen of Kyūshū to the miso ramen of Hokkaidō.

I actually have a cook book called 101 things to do with ramen noodles. If you want me to send you some of the recipes just pm me. I have lived off of ramen noodles many times in the past and this book has saved my taste buds!

I've never had to live off ramen, but my son LOVES them.  He's graduating high school this year and will probably need some recipes.  I saw that 101 ramen recipes book and now regret not buying it.   LOL   

here are some links I found
