Cheap, filling, and ready in minutes. During college, ramen noodles, were a welcome addition, when I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on food.
My parents sent me care package throughout the years, and noodles were something they thoughtfully included.
Getting creative with Ramen noodles
Even as a college kid, I was interested in delicious, healthy, and filling meals, and so a variety of vegetables were added to my noodles. If I had the money to make it healthier, if not the plain noodles would suffice, it just wasn’t as tasty.
These days, I don’t eat a lot of ramen noodles or your traditional pasta…
The majority of the pasta I make is made from vegetables; I use a vegetable pasta maker. Its much healthier than the traditional noodles, and during harvest time I have more than enough vegetables to satisfy my noodle craving.
Vegetable pasta maker
I first learned about vegetable pasta when I became interested in raw foods, I’d eaten raw foods throughout my life, and was fascinated that some ate this exclusively. Naturally, I was even more intrigued, when I saw vegetables like made from vegetables! I’ve tried a few vegetable pasta noodle machines, but my favorite is the plastic spiral vegetable slicer. I’ve had mine for five years.
The above photo was taken last evening, the main ingredient is ramen noodles, to which I added broccoli, tomato, egg, and garlic. My daughter helped prepare this dish, and thought it was delicious.
