Volcano Ramen

Submitted From: Westland, MI


  • 1 Package of Ramen Noodles (any flavor)
  • Red Hot or Tabasco Sauce (Red Hot gives more flavor)
  • Crushed Red Pepper (Also add to taste)
  • Half a jar of plain spaghetti sauce
  • Optional: Parmesean cheese

First boil the noodles as you usually would, add the flavoring, then put into a small bowl and let it sit for about 5 minutes to let the broth soak into the noodles. Then drain the noodles and cover with the cooked spaghetti sauce. Add hot sauce and red pepper as you like it. Add parmesean cheese if you want to take away some of the spice. Mix together and enjoy!

Note: My personal favorite is Chili Ramen noodles with Red Hot sauce. It's very flavorful and still spicy enough for me. If you use any of the picante flavors you don't need to add the red pepper.

Super Veggie Ramen

Submitted From: Southwest Texas State


  • Nissin Top Ramen Chili flavor
  • 1/2 tbsp oil or enough to cover pan
  • 1/2 carrot cut into strips
  • 5 2inch strips red bell pepper
  • 1 thick slice red onion, chopped
  • 2-3 little mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp peas (I use frozen)
  • 1 tbsp corn (frozen)
  • 1/4 clove garlic minced super fine
  • Optional: chili pepper flakes or fresh minced
  • Optional: 1 egg

Cook Ramen according to directions, but only add 1/2 of the flavor packet. If you are using egg, add to water when you add noodles. Heat oil in wok or skillet over medium heat. Add all vegetables and garlic (add peas and corn still frozen). Stir constantly and lower heat if you notice any searing or if you like softer veggies. My vegetables are usely done in 2 1/2 - 3 minutes, but I like them a bit crisp. Drain liquid off noodles and add vegetables and extra chili pepper if its not spicy enough. (makes 1 serving).

Note: I use Nissin Ramen because its the cheapest at my grocery, but any other brand of chili or hot and spicy flavor ramen will work. I only use a 1/2 packet because I try to keep my sodium intake down. If you use the whole packet you shouldn't need to add any extra chili peper. I add egg sometimes because it adds protein and it gives it a richer taste. You can substitute other veggies, but if you use softer ones like mushrooms or squash add them after the other veggies have cooked a minute or so.

Oriental Ramen stir-fry

Submitted By: Alex

Submitted From: Virginia


  • 4-6 slices bacon
  • Onion, cut up (a small-medium sized handful)
  • Carrots, cut up (a large handful)
  • Other veggies: peas, celery, whatever you like.
  • 1 pack Ramen noodles. (oriental flavor)
  • 1 egg
  • soy sauce
  • Optional: Tomatoes
  • Optional: Peppers
  • Optional: Frozen stir-fry vegetables
  • Optional: Pepperoni or crab meat

Cut the bacon into small pieces (1" strips works good) In a skillet, start cooking the bacon as normal (on medium heat). Cut up your onion, carrots, and other veggies. In a seperate pan, cook the noodles as normal, while waiting for the bacon to cook. It works best if you break up the noodles before cooking, but you don't have to.
When the bacon's nearly finished, add the vegetables and stir quickly. Let cook a couple more minutes, stirring frequently, Then drain the almost all of the bacon grease Drop an egg into the skillet, and stir it into the bacon/veggie mixture. Add the flavor packet to the noodles, stir, then drain most of the water. Leave just a little bit of water. Add the noodles to the bacon/veggie mixture. Stir. Lower heat to Low, Cook for a couple more minutes, stirring frequently. Add some soy sauce and salt & pepper to taste. Serve. Makes 2 servings, or 1 if you're really hungry.

Note: I've only tried this with the oriental flavor, but I am guessing Beef or Pork might be pretty good too.

Protein Party Ramen

Submitted By: Tracy Heuser

Submitted From: Santa Rosa Junior College


  • Oriental flavor ramen
  • One egg, beaten
  • Frozen soybeans
  • Sesame chili oil

Boil the water and add a handful of frozen soybeans. When the water starts to boil again, toss in your ramen and boil as per instructions on package. At the last minute, pour in the egg and stir it around a little (but not TOO much). Let it cook until the egg becomes solid (not too long). Serve with sesame chili oil for a spicy treat!

Note: This recipe is great for stretching a package of ramen into a meal. Good 'n' hearty!
