Fast and very tasty!! Followed the recipe but I did add another strip of bacon...will make this again. This would be a great recipe for the camp stove. Thanks for sharing !!

no changes - and yes, I would make it again - very easy!

OMG, this is sooo good and easy. I don't always have bacon but I think it would be good with any meat, might have to use vegetable or olive oil for the "drippings."

The only difference I did to this receipt was to use part of the flavor packet when fixing the noodles in the water. I also added bell pepper with the onions and sauted them with a bit of olive...
