Ichi-Kraft * Ramen and Kraft Dinner

"Sounds weird but it tastes really good! When I was a kid my aunt used to make this for me, apparently it was popular with her and her dorm friends. I still eat this today and thought I should post it on Zaar so everyone can try it!"

Ready In:


  • 1 (225 g) package macaroni and cheese mix (any brand, I usually buy Kraft Dinner)
  • 14 cup milk
  • 14 cup butter (not spread or tub product) or 1/4 cup margarine (not spread or tub product)
  • 1 (85 g) package ramen noodles, any flavor (I use Ichiban, Mr. Noodles or no-name brand but you may have different brands in the U.S.)


  • Cook the macaroni according to the package directions, adding the ramen for the final 3 minutes.
  • When done, drain in colander.
  • Return the mac and noodles to the pot and continue making according to the macaroni package directions (add butter, milk and cheese sauce mix) -- and add the ramen seasoning too!
  • Mix well and serve.

    Where’d your Aunt go to school? I feel like this is a very specific tradition from a boarding school I went to, haha

    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.
