Unfortunately this recipe has a lot of problems. It is, like another reviewer commented, a souped up Ramen noodles recipe. Personally I love Ramen noodles and I love salt. But, as 99% of the other reviews mentioned it is too salty! I think inherently the problem lies in the noodles cooking in the soup. The noodles soak up the super rich flavor. I even only put in 2 packets of Ramen seasoning, but it was just too much. My husband wasn't home for dinner and it's a good thing. He would have taken 2 bites and been done. I also think the butter is completely unnessary in this recipe, even though I love my butter. It seperated from the soups, leaving puddles of oil on top. I've been trying to think about how to improve on this recipe so it's not so salty and rich, but I think it would completely change the recipe. Growing up as a kid my mom would make a similar type dish that also used condensed soups, but she would simmer the meat and soups together, cook skinny egg noodles seperately and mix it all together. It was a much better ratio of noodle to soup. She didn't add any additional spices because it really didn't need it (my dad always added lots of black pepper to his.) It was SO much better and not salty at all. IF I ever get a craving for a creamy Ramen noodles and decide to try again I'll cut out one can of soup and replace with 1 can of water, eliminate the seasoning packets (or just use 1 max.) And I'll do as some other reviewers have done and cook the noodles seperately.
