Need ideas for QUICK ramen noodle ideas

As an extremely busy college student and many times ramen noodles are the only thing I have time for. I can crush them with a can before I open them andafter some hot water--I can eat it with a spoon with one had leaving the other hand free to work. I usually put some bacon in mine for extra flavor as I can make this ahead and it has flavor. However, it can also be bought precooked in a package as well as precrumbled in a jar. Sometimes I add some dried tomato and basil pesto. It makes it taste like spaghetti.

I am wondering if there are other ideas of things that could be added to ramen noodles to make them quick and easy to eat while a person is busy with the other hand? What are your ideas! I have run out of them.

My kids love Ramen noodles. I throw leftover veggies and meat into the soup or some frozen veggies while it is cooking.

I cant wait to read some other ideas on this subject.

Here's a good soup using Ramen noodles:

If your broccoli was precooked, you might be able to do this with one hand. I use cooked chicken from a can, and I also leave out the almonds and add a little cheese- whatever I have on hand.

I also add leftover meat and veggies to ramen noodles to make it more of a complete meal. Plus it uses up odds and ends

I always drain the water out of the noodles when I eat them. I believe the package says to leave some in, making it like a soup. I drain all the water and throw the flavor packet in after the water is gone. Gives it a stronger flavor and can eat with a fork. I usually don't put anything in it, but a I tired boiling the noodles with water and soy sauce. It wasn't half bad!

I hadn't thought about adding soy sauce. I wonder what it would taste like with soy sauce and mashed up egg kinda like fried rice?

I had to laugh when I read the posts from the last couple of days as I had read a romance book where they were discussed the "to drain or not to drain" the ramen noodles.

My daughter and g-son eat them drained all the time and add the flavoring after they drain too. Not me too salty/spicy that way for me. I don't use all the broth but do keep most of it in. My daughter has a scrambled egg in with her. I sometimes stir in a raw egg sort of makes it like egg drop soup but with noodles. And the hot broth and noodles cooks the egg so you are not eat a raw one UGH

The way Maddie likes her "soup" is while the water is boiling add a handful or two of frozen veggies, she likes the lima beans, add the flavor packet, then the noodles, which I've crunched up.
Miriam likes hers as directed.
Andrew likes to eat the authentic right from China stuff. He has a friend who is Chinese. Zhao's mother sends him the stuff by the case full. I made it for Andrew once even though the directions are in Chinese. I tasted it, WOW! Was it ever spicy! I don't know how any one can eat the stuff.
