Six-Minute, Single-Serving "Spaghetti"

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"Ideal for college dorm rooms, this recipe will satisfy a serious Italian food craving and takes just minutes to prepare using only a microwave. Can also be cooked on the stovetop. Add a variety of extra veggies for a healthier, more filling meal. Top with cheese and serve with crusty garlic bread, grilled chicken, or a fresh salad. And of course a big glass of wine!"

  1. Break block of ramen into 4 equal pieces. Place in a medium microwave-safe bowl and top with spinach. Fill bowl with water until noodles are covered. Microwave on high until noodles are cooked and spinach is wilted, 3 1/2 minutes.
  2. Pour out excess water. Add pasta sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, and olive oil; mix until noodles are coated. Microwave again until sauce is warm, about 30 seconds. Top with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute mozzarella cheese for the Parmesan if desired.
  • Use roasted red peppers instead of the sun-dried tomatoes if preferred.
