I made this recipe to share with two of my fellow teachers for lunch. One said, "That lunch was amazing! It was so yummy. The spice level was great and I loved the noodles with it." The other said, "That was fantastic! Not too spicy and it had great flavor." Needless to say, we all enjoyed it! This recipe is quick and easy to put together. So flavorful. Note to future reviewers: I would highly recommend cooking the ramen noodles LAST. If you make them first they turn into a congealed mass that is hard to separate, even when adding them to the sauce. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, Chai Latte 2 Go! ***Made for Fall PAC 2012***
