This is so yummy. I always cook the macaroni in the microwave and I added the ramen noodles during the last 3 minutes. It was perfect. I never add butter. For the noodles, I had the chicken flavor. I used maybe half the seasoning cause it's too salty. Thanks Babzy :) Made for Help a Naked recipe event
We also discovered this in college when faced with a nearly empty pantry and three to feed. We added about a 1/2 C of frozen peas and a small can of tuna fish. The recipe as stated above is how I make it for my carb-freak son. He calls it macaramie and cheese. lol
I ate this and didn't mind it at all, but I didn't think it was an improvement over either ramen or mac and cheese. It was bland- I want to add something spicy if I do this again.
I think next time less flavor packet (used 1/2). I liked it that way, the 4yo gobbled hers (!!!!) DH was a bit unsure of the flavor part.
Yummo!!!!!!!!!!! Good old Ichi-Kraft=) Ichiban's the best brand to use (in my opinion).
Everyone enjoyed this for lunch today. I doubled the recipe for 4 of us and I am glad I did. Next time I won't use both ramen noodle flavor packs since we thought that it competed with the cheese sauce too much but the kids especially loved it. I used chicken flavored ramen but will experiment with other flavors. Thanks for posting.
This is our new favorite way to fix boxed mac-n-cheese. Thanks for sharing a delicious and budget friendly recipe.
This was great. Had it a few nights ago with fish sticks and the family thought the two went well together. Thanks for a new spin on an old favorite!
This is a huge hit in our family. My daughter asked me to promise to make boxed mac and cheese this way every time. We used the chicken flavored ramin. Its also nice on the budget as it nearly doubles the meal for an extra twenty cents (cost of the ramin). We love the flavor and interest the ramin adds to ordinary kraft mac. Thanks for the great idea!
