japanese ramen

This stuff is very yummy and so much healthier than the cheapie prepackaged Maruchan Ramen. My whole family loves when I make this! I usually use it as a starter to another Japanese entree, but they tell me I could make the whole meal out of this soup alone! You can prep most everything early so all you have to do is heat the broth and noodles. So easy and so good!
