I made this recipe and just didn’t like it. This is also the first recipe I have made from All Recipes that was just not good and that I felt like I could not alter to make good. Although one of my children seemed to appreciate it, returning for seconds, I attribute that to a compromised palate. My husband, who is very low maintenance and is always appreciative praising my cooking quietly ate and didn’t say a word. Here was my experience. First, the texture of these instant noodles was slimy and did not work with the texture of the peas and bacon. Second, the overall taste was bitter and not very flavorful. I struggled with how to even go about doctoring the taste and finally decided it would require a completely separate recipe including homemade ramen noodles at best. I will not be revisiting this one. Read More

Easy to make and I had all the ingredients available. I used 4 slices of bacon and left out the peas and replaced them with cut up fresh mushrooms. It was a great side dish. Read More

FANTASTIC!! This was the most delicous and the fastest dish I made by far. But just to let you know, I used Korean Spicy Ramen as my noodles and had mix the spice condiments at the end to give it a liitle bit of kick. - Love it! This is my new comfort food! :) Read More

This is a great meal when you’re in a time crunch. I doubled it for my family of four and it was enough when I added salad and garlic bread. Read More
