I almost have a heart attack everytime I see the fat content. But my Asian friend is good at dolling them up a bit - adding meat or whatever - so they can be hard to resist. Wouldn't want to live off them though. My friend keeps saying, "when we move out, we're going to be living off Ramen Noodles!" I'm semi-smiling thinking..."no way in hell"...
Now, see, once you start doctoring Ramen up by putting in chicken and veggies, you're technically cooking anyway, and might as well make something that tastes better than Ramen.
I probably eat Ramen once a year, and when I do, I eat it as-is, b/c I just feel like eating Ramen for whatever reason. It's like those frozen party pizzas--they're just kind of good for what they are, but don't expect it to taste like actual food.
EffEm, I'm surprised at you! Homemade pasta is the most amazing thing EVAR. And not all that hard to make. And the dough is really good raw.
If you ever travel and see these for sale, for God's sake buy them and eat them and then discipline yourself to eat something else for at least one meal a day. Otherwise you'll start to shake and sweat and think you have adult-onset diabetes.
Tip: drain the noodles before applying the flavourings. No broth. And forget the other flavours, you only need original. Oh, and just-undercooked>just-overcooked.
