This is a fool proof, quick and easy way to whip up a tasy dish when the cupboard is bare. I am both thrilled and amazed how easy it is to turn a packet of 'Top Ramen type' noodles into a gourmet dish!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 packet Top Ramen noodles
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • cracked pepper, to taste
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream (Sour cream can be eliminated as an ingredient or substituted with a few slices of cheese of any type)


  1. Set aside the flavor packet and boil the noodles according the instructions on the packet (usually 3 minutes).
  2. Drain and set aside.
  3. Stir together the milk and flour and then cook them on med-high in the same pot you just used to cook the noodles.
  4. Add the flavor packet and cracked pepper, stirring constantly.
  5. The sauce will thicken nicely within a few minutes.
  6. Add the sour cream, still stirring.
  7. Mix the cooked noodles back in and pour the noodles and sauce into a serving dish and Presto!
  8. --You have a creamy, tasty and satisfying meal that can be served as is or can be dressed up as a side dish or with veggies of your choice added into it, or with baked chicken etc.
  9. placed on top of it and served as an entree.

This was awesome! Made it last nite and we loved it. I didn't find the parmesan flavor Ramens at my grocer, so I used the chicken and mushroom flavor instead. Still tasted really good! I used 2 packets of noodles to make a nice double batch. Wonderful:)

This was very, very good. I added a cup of canned petite peas to ours. Will make this again soon, maybe with asparagus...mmmm

Love it! Easy to make, especially on a college-type budget. Makes too much sauce for one packet of ramen, but I make two anyways so it doesnt seem to matter. thanks for sharing!
