Ramen-Eaters Anonymous

Noodles are one of college students’ favorite feel-good foods, so it’s high time they gained some national recognition.  From January to March, noodle consumption increases 20 percent;  fittingly, March is the National Pasta Association’s National Noodle Month. For the rest of this month, we recommend celebrating by sticking to good old late-night spaghetti or trying a sweet new noodle dish. Some suggestions: Vietnamese beef pho noodle-soup, clam linguine, spicy Sichuan Dan-dan noodles, pad thai… the list goes on. Leave a comment with your favorite or most creative noodle recipe. Here’s to mom’s chicken noodle soup!

Favorite recipe: grab a huge tupperware, fill it with cut-up tomatoes, add more olive oil than you should, salt, pepper, garlic, and basil, and let the whole mixture sit outside in the sun for a few hours. Serve over pasta tossed (while hot!) with mozzarella.

That said, Supreme (43rd and Walnut)is having a sale on Ramen right now. It’s 4 for a buck. They have the vegetarian Oriental one. You know you want it.

Favorite ramen recipe: Got this one from my roomate. Sounds gross, but give it a chance…Make ramen on the stovetop normally (we use an extra spicy Korean brand found at Chinatown). Add 2/3 of the seasoning packet. While the water is still boiling, crack an egg into the soup. Finally, put one slice of American cheese on the still piping-hot noodles. Trust me, it’s worth the adventure.

@Danyal – Don’t know about the cheese, but the egg is definitely key.

Make ramen normally (sans seasoning), but fry up some veggies (frozen if you’re lazy) in a pan on the side in olive oil while the ramen’s cooking. When the noodles are done, drain them and dump them onto the veggies. Top with your choice of “authentic” stir-fry sauce (from FroGro) or authentic stir-fry sauce (from Chinatown), stir and fry for a couple minutes, then serve. Takes ten minutes, tops, and tastes amazing. (recipe from my mom)
