Very good. I will make again!
Good recipe for people on an extremely tight budget. I was surprised by the taste. I thought ramen flavor packet would make it unbearably salty, but it came out fine. Instead of vegetable oil and snap peas, I used olive oil and regular frozen peas. I also added cheddar cheese and olives and left out the red onions since I didn’t have any.
This was good, but I must have cooked too much pasta because I didn't have enough sauce. My salad was a little drier than I prefer. I will make again though, just reduce the pasta some. Since you need the Ramen sauce pack to make the sauce I can't really double it easily.
Turned out great! I doubled this recipe for a picnic. I added a little seasme oil and some seasme seeds. I also used the packaged shredded brocolli blend because the store was out of carrots. I also used the frozen peas because I had them on hand.
While this was a definitely a tasty dish, I would have preferred the dressing to have been more substantial. It was very mild and just slightly sweet. Next time I would try adding a thicker asian-type dressing, or try to doctor up the original dressing with some spices.
This is quick and tasty. Great for parties, too.
The recipe ingredient list calls for "ramen noodles," no particular flavor, so I bought "chicken." I did not realize until I read step 3 that it was supposed to be "Oriental," so I adapted the dressing with what I had on hand. I cut back a little on the vegetable oil and added a bit of both sesame and chili oils, as well as some Thai garlic chili paste. The dressing ended up tasting wonderful with just a little pop of heat from the chili paste and chili oil. The rotini I had on hand was multi-color and to brighten it even more, I added a little bit of sliced red bell pepper, peeled & seeded cucumber chunks, and squeezed some fresh lime juice over it. The one thing I wasn't crazy about was the dry ramen noodles. I think I would prefer chopped peanuts, but that just could be a personal taste preference. Overall, a very nice pasta salad with good presentation. Thanks, Lori, for sharing with us.
Tasty, quick, cheap, and I always have the ingredients on hand. Definitely broke college student approved!
