Dressed Up Ramen Noodles

Fair warning: This is, by no means, gourmet cuisine.  It's food for when you want something  fast, not necessarily good for you, and reminiscent of your college days.  I had been debating whether or not to share this one with you, but ultimately decided that I couldn't help myself, and had to blog about it.

I saw this on Pinterest somewhere, and didn't pin or bookmark it.  So, my bad.

You'll need:

2 cups water
1 package Ramen Noodles & enclosed seasoning, preferably chicken flavor (although the Oriental flavor works out well, too)
2 tbs peanut butter, smooth or chunky will work
1 tbs soy sauce
hot sauce, to taste

Bring the water to a boil in a small pot.  Add the noodles and allow to boil for 3 minutes.  Remove the pot from the heat and add the enclosed seasoning packet.  Let this sit for 1 minute.

While this is going on, put the peanut butter, soy sauce, and hot sauce in a bowl and zap it in the microwave for about 15 seconds.  This will make it easier to stir up.

After the noodles have sat in the seasoning for a minute, drain off most of the liquid.  Add the peanut sauce to the noodles and stir to combine.  

Depending on how much liquid you left in the pot, your noodles might be a bit soupy.  It's perfectly delicious like this, with a bit of peanutty broth.  If you let it sit for a bit, the noodles will absorb this broth again, and things will be less soupy.

Garnish with some green onions (or not, as in my case), and dig in!
