Was worry about Ramen noodle but gave it a try,  It was tasty and Froze well. Right now i working my way though the site but this one can be a staple for me.  (and I dislike Ramen noodles)

This recipe is perfect for busy nights!  I added some red pepper flakes with the water and seasoning packet for some extra spice and sprinkled sesame seeds on top before serving it.

This was super easy to make, I didnt put the ginger in because I am not a fan of ginger.  It was great! I served it with some egg rolls for a complete meal.

This is a great and easy recipe to make.  My kids loved it.
