I am speechless....when putting this together I thought I would really dislike it. I thought the cheese would be too dominant, the ramen too crunchy, and the casserole would be dry. Absolutely NOT true to all of the above. It is amazing! I used about 3 cups of frozen (but thawed) chopped broccoli and 2 cups of chopped cooked chicken. I used fresh mushrooms sauteed in a bit of butter, and I also added about 1.4c. chopped red pepper (mainly for some color pizzazz) that was also sauteed in butter. The texture of this casserole is amazing and the flavor spectacular. I have found a new favorite. It would be great with leftover Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham as well. My only piece of advice is to crumble the ramen IN the packet before opening it. My hands were nearly shredded buy the time I finished doing it with my bare hands.
This is quite a clever and unique casserole. I would have never thought of using ramen noodles this way. It really works and it is delicious. I used fresh (sauteed) sliced mushrooms instead of canned. This is a great side when you want something different. Thanx for posting. Miss you, RE!
We don't eat casseroles much, but I also love Alton Brown, plus I have been on a ramen noodle kick lately, so I made this yesterday. Very tasty. Good and cheesy. I also added chopped, cooked chicken. Looking forward to the leftovers.
This was excellent! I was nervous about the noodles, but it worked perfectly. I will definitely be making this again!
This was fantastic. Easy to make and very tasty. My wife and mother-in-law loved it.
I skipped the shrooms sinc emy husband doesn't like them and used mushroom chicken flavored ramen to replace the flavor. i added chicken chunks to make it a full meal. my husband loved it. i thought it was 'good'.
Terrific--easy and delicious side dish! Used half Pepper-Jack Cheese and half sharp Cheedar. Also only used one can of mushrooms and added a small can of chopped chiles--really yummy! This is going to be a frequent visitor to our supper table! Thanks for posting this recipe.
