    I long for the day food engineers come up with some dehydrated kind of magic, so you could just add hot water to the package contents and get the dish from Fig. 2.

    Way too lazy to boil eggs and throw leftover meat on it.

    Of course the best solution would be to have a Ramen booth near home, but I don't see those very often (or at all) here in Germany.

    PS: Anyway, I find this thread has some great ideas for lazy assholes like myself, bookmarking!

    No one eat Italian Barilla pasta? Instead of this industry's white flour instant shiiiiii?

    shame on you all fast food eaters.

    P. S. Latest pasta offers whole grain one, so the answer to tc's question is may all ramen eater die for poor nutritions.

    All the time, Barilla Penne with some Barilla Gorgonzola sauce and Grana Padano cheese above it mostly.
    That is also fast food for me, but you know, I need some variation, I can't eat that seven days a week.
    I am too lazy though.

    Yes, I know. I'm Argentine, so it feels weird to eat something called "Penne".
    No homo, though.

    penne mean quill/pen in italian...

    Also speaking of ramen - I'm rather simple man. I throw some chopped hot dogs or other sausage into it, or some green onions.

    Linguini with instant noodles flavouring?! My italian soul straight out died after reading that!
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You're right, they're called that way due to the sharp diagonal edge which kinda resembles an old fountain pen tip. One letter makes a BIG difference ;)
    If you want some "explicit" italian pasta, no worries, we have some here: there's "pasta alla puttanesca" which can be literally translated as "whoreish pasta" (no idea why it's called that way, but keep in mind that "puttanesca" isn't usually translated because it's the recipe's name - but still, "puttana" means whore and "puttanesca" is an adjective derived from that) or if you don't swing that way, we've also got "minchiette": "minchia" is a slang word for penis and, well... Use your imagination to imagine what they look like. The more you know (but you rather wouldn't).

    They can dehydrate anything these days (fruit, vegetables, spices, dairy, eggs, meat, anything), but preserving the texture is difficult and you usually end up with mush when it's rehydrated. We're some years away still from instant baked chicken or dehydrated pizza :P



    Okay, other end of the spectrum now: have you tried adding ramen to something else? Have you tried that ramen burger, ramen pizza, ramen "mac" & cheese, things of that sort?

    I've tried ramen with hamburger, never again. I also tried ramen in bread, like a sandwich, it's great. Just have to correctly season the noodles (some kind of yakisoba pan)

    I've made fancy soup (mushrooms clarified through the agar-agar method), and cooked a brick of the Top Ramen. I fried up some thick sliced ham, sliced some green onions, and soft boiled an egg. It was delicious, but it took three days to make (the agar method of clarifying soup needs it to drip through the solidified agar).

    I've also been known to eat the noodles "raw" with the msg packet thrown on. It was "ghetto chips" in my neighbourhood.

    Interesting. Ramen with hamburger as in putting it in a hamburger bun as one of the toppings? Or the ramen burger?

    Oh god what is this atrocity :rofl: No I meant as a topping. The texture was awful and it didn't bring the "pzazz" I was expecting to be honest. But thanks to that I finalized my Japan and Italy inspired burger recipe.

    I made a ramen flavored japanese mayonnaise (slightly overcooked ramen, the broth, mixed with mayonnaise, dashi, soy sauce, mirin and saké), buns with seaweed and sesame sprinkled on top, meat with a little bit more fat than usual, mushrooms (porcini), rucola, cherry tomato, flakes of parmesan. Still have to try it though.

    Usually I make mine from scratch, usually I just do it like
    Noodles, Beef Broth, Garlic, cooked spinach, Egg, and sometimes some lemon to add some tang.

    I love ramen, and Yakisoba

    Haha! He's not wrong though
