Cheap and Easy Egg Noodle Soup
Step 1) Get yourself some eggs and a pack of your favorite ramen.
Step 2) Fill a pot just over 1/3 full with water. Drop in the ramen noodles once the water is boiling.
Step 3) Cook the noodles until they break apart easily with a spoon (about 2-3 minutes). Reduce the heat to low. Crack your eggs into the water with the noodles.
Step 4) Slowly stir the eggs with the noodles. You want your eggs to be solid but wispy with some egg chunks. Stir in the spices from the spice pack (The spice pack is full of sodium. Skip this step if you want to keep you sodium intake low). Stir until the egg bits are solid. This should take about 2 minutes.
Step 5) Pour your egg noodle soup into a large bowl. Grind some pepper over it or splash it with some hot sauce. Pair it with side salad and some vino. and WHABAM!
