I love my Top Ramen as much as the next guy, but after a whole week of midnight ramen munchies, I needed something a little different to satisfy my appetite. Enter: Ramen Pad Thai. Think 4am delivery pad thai quality with the instant ramen price – yeah, I’m serious. With just a couple extra ingredients you can take your dirt-cheap ramen from lazy to amazing.
