Noodles in Tomato Sauce Made with Instant Ramen

Noodles in Tomato Sauce Made with Instant Ramen

I recreated the tomato ramen noodles from a shop called "Taiyo no Tomato-men" ! Transform your salt broth instant noodles into a dish with an Italian spin! The tartness of the tomatoes are amazing.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Your preferred salt-flavored instant ramen
1 package (1 serving)
Canned diced tomatoes
1
Grated mozarella cheese
to your liking
Dried basil (optional)
to your liking

Steps

1. Use your favourite salt broth ramen noodles. I used "Sapporo Ichiban Shio ramen."
2. Add slightly less hot water than the amount instructed on the package to a pot. The suggested amount of hot water was 500 ml so I used 400 ml!
3. Add all the canned tomatoes. Bring to a boil.
4. When it starts to boil, add the noodles, and cook by following the instructions on the package.
5. Transfer only the noodles to a bowl, sprinkle on cheese, then pour into the soup. The cheese melts nicely, and it's delicious!
6. Garnish with dry basil on top, and serve! It's also tasty with Tabasco. Try it if you like.
7. After finishing the noodles, you can add cooked rice to the bowl to make risotto. It's also delicious this way.

Story Behind this Recipe

My brother took me to "Taiyo no Tomato men," a ramen shop which serves a special tomato-based menu, and he taught me this recipe so I could cook it at home.
