“As many people who have even been on a tight budget, I have eaten a lot of Ramen. Ever sense I have been eating Ramen, I have put all kinds of things with it. Some were good and others... well, they could have been better. I figured I would share some that were different than the other I have seen on RecipeZaar.”
1 bowl of soup

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Noodles
  • 1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, any flavor will work. I like Oriental
  • 2 cups water
  • Soup
  • 1 seasoning, packet (from the Ramen)
  • 1 -2 cup water (depending on how strong or soupy you like it)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • 14 cup shredded aged white cheddar cheese (I found some 4 year old cheese at Sam's Club for cheap.)
  • 14 cup golden raisin
  • Tabasco sauce


  1. Place 1 packet Ramen and 2 cups water in a microwave safe container.
  2. Microwave on high for 4-6 minutes depending on microwave or until noodles are desired tenderness.
  3. Depending on how hot you like your soup, how strong and soupy, you can drain the noodles and add cooler water. Usually this is about 1-2 cups water. Don't make it too cold or the cheese will not melt right.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  5. Side note: If you are like me and don't like it too hot or too soupy, but this makes it too strong, don't use the entire seasoning packet. Same advice if you find it is too salty. You can even replace with a small piece of bullion.
