It's a darn good lunch/snack. One of those silly recipes that kids love and adults love too (but are embarrassed to admit;) ) I recommend reduced-sodium soup.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can reduced fat reduced sodium condensed tomato soup
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can water, the soup can
  • 14-12 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, broken in half, any flavor would likely work
  • 14-12 cup shredded parmesan cheese


  1. In a saucepan, place tomato soup, water, garlic powder and basil. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add ramen noodles and flavor packet (I don't add all of the powder).
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, or until noodles are done to your likeness.
  4. Serve in bowls and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

I can't believe I never rated this recipe! I stumbled upon recipezaar by accident over a year ago and this recipe was featured on the front page. I knew I had all the ingredients at home so I whipped it up for lunch. It was very good! And ever since I found this recipe I have been hooked on recipezaar, and I guess I kind of owe it to this recipe! Thanks :)

What a clever idea! I used 1/4 t. garlic powder but will use the full 1/2 t. next time. I loved the addition of parmesan on top. Super quick lunch for me to make!

I made this with tomato-with-basil-and-oregano soup, and only used half the flavor packet. Next time, I'll use the whole packet...the taste just wasn't noticeable. Not bad for a quick lunch.
