COPYBOY IN THE KITCHEN (an ongoing series depending on the ratings)


When I was between jobs this was my recipe for a fabulous 4 dollar / 4minute fettuccine Alfredo.

Ingredients:
- 2 packs of Ramen Noodles (50¢)
- Country Crock Margarine ($1.50)
- Kraft Macaroni & Cheese ($2.00)


Directions:
Open Ramen noodle packs and add to bowl with water.

Discard soup mix packets.

Microwave Ramen noodles for 3 min and 15 seconds.

Drain.

Add back to big bowl.

Dump in margarine.

Add just the powdered cheese (without noodles).

Mix well.

Total time in the kitchen: 3 minutes on the dot

Goes great with a cool refreshing Fresca®

  1. Hmmm! I'm not thinking I'd try this one, no matter how poor I was. I would eat the noodles though (and I do)...

  3. Ramen noodles and cream of mushroom soup is cheap, too. Kept my son alive when he was broke.

  4. You are quite the culinary mastermind. I like the ramen noodles but always discard the spice packet as well. My favorite thing to do with them is make a ginger chicken dish.

  8. Interesting. But I don't like to waste food, so...I'd probably put the mac noodles in too.

  14. I think our culinary skills are probably the same. Instant noodles are the only thing I can cook.

  17. I'm incredibly embarrassed to admit I ate similar concoctions in college - although I was very health-conscious back then and took care to add frozen peas. :)

  18. From that first photo I thought you were going to teach us how to re-rock crack cocaine. Can you do that next?

  19. I don't know which sounds worse...the mac & cheese with the ramen or the Fresca. *shiver*

  21. When food can be made instantly, it's my type of food.

  22. Hmm... Ramen and Mac & Cheese together. Who would think? Did this taste any good?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sounds like something I would've eaten in college.

  25. I think I'll pass....lol. Sounds like something that looks disgusting, but probably tastes ok!!!

  26. As a part-Italian..I weep.
    As a frugal gormet...I cheer.

  27. Everything but the Fresca sounds good. In college we made some weird combination of mac and cheese and minute rice.

  28. Gotta love guy cooking haha. I was quite under the weather today from a rough saturday night, and was dying to get my hands on some Kraft Dinner (that's what we Canadians call it). Unfortunately, they don't have any here in Denmark. Thanks so much for making my blog a blog of the day, that's so awesome!

  29. Try the Ramen Broth (spices that you discarded) with grits... then add the powder from the mac and cheese!

  30. This is a really nice treat for myself after getting my Basset Certification! I am always craving for Ramen ever since I tasted it. It's more like a special noodles with lots of toppings. I feel like I know now why Naruto (anime) likes it. :)
