    Chef1MOM-Connie's Note:

    The challenge for Dining on a Dollar Contest, 2008, was to come up with a meal using ramen noodles and a few other ingredients from a select list. This is a savory dinner or lunch that can be made in a short amount of time but gives a BIG amount of flavor. The simplicity of making this meal is wonderful even for the beginning cook. It can be used for everyday dinners or lunches as well as company is coming. No one will believe it is a budget friendly meal. Serve with your favorite vegetables. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and friends did.

      Yummy!! This is very good and very easy to make! I prepped everything a few hours ahead of time, so it was quick to put together for dinner. Thanks so much for posting! Made for I Recommend Tag.

      This made a quick & easy lunch for us today. We enjoyed it, but thought the amounts of garlic and bell peppers were too much for our family's tastes. Next time I would reduce the garlic somewhat, and replace some of the pepper with another veggie. Thanks for sharing this creative way to use ramen.
