Know Your Noodles

Although they're famous for being a fast, affordable meal option for the time-crunched and cash-strapped, instant ramen noodles can go way beyond just-add-water applications. Based on the hand-pulled Japanese noodles of the same name, these ubiquitous planks are precooked, so they become soft and pliable in mere minutes in boiling water. They can also be broken, toasted, and used for their crunch. Check out these easy ideas that take you past the package instructions.
