I, too, lived for years on Oodles of Noodles and anything that could be
mixed into them. These Ramen are so delicious. The nice thing is that you
could also get 5 packs for $1. Great for low-income families, isn't it?
Making on of the United States' foods that's almost THE highest in saturated
fat available so cheaply? Don't we do our people favors? Uh huh.
I haven't found anything available that is a ramen in its prefried form.
I'm wondering if it's not fried, if it has a completely different name and
nature, that when asking about it, people have no idea what I mean.
I have, however, found a really delicious noodle in my search! I have become
addicted to bean-thread noodles. They look weird, kinda clear, and have a
really nice texture. They also cook literally in seconds. You almost just
dip them in boiling water. As with all noodles, I insult them before I cook
them: I smash them into bite-sized pieces. <LOL> Although these noodles
don't compliment Italian sauces, they're so wonderful with lighter Asian
sauces or vinaigrette dressings.
Although I realize this isn't a substitute for delicious, artery-hardening
Ramen noodles, they're good ones you might have missed!

Hi: What do you use that might be as quick and easy as the ramen
noodles; is there an equivalent on the market that is readily available
and not fried in fat?
