Planet Green reader Jennifer was responding to my post "Ditch The Processed Food," and mentioned that she survived her college years by eating Top Ramen. Actually, I believe everyone did. I loved the salt hit that came in that little flavour packet, but I always got a headache from the MSG. I joked with Jennifer that I would do a homemade noodle recipe and give her the credit. So here it is.
This is another one of those recipes that I didn't really measure out, so you can toss in whatever you like. I added some strips of cabbage for a vegetable, but I don't recommend it. It takes away from the purity of eating the homemade version of junk food. Just as with my pop tart post, there is a real appeal in eating something that resembles the stuff you ate as a kid, but isn't filling you with chemicals or enough salt to send your blood pressure into the stratosphere. This was fun. Fifteen minutes in the kitchen and I was transported back to my university days.
