Have you ever turned a simple thing such as a regular package of noodles into a wonderful, healthy and fulfilling meal? I just made some noodles and i added fresh broccoli and carrots with a couple of eggs and wow what a masterpiece .... LOL! I guess i thought i would share because it is healthy and only takes about 10 minutes tops whne your veggies are chopped finely enough!!

I've tried your creation, and I must admit its pretty good, I really enjoyed it, it was a great idea and easy to make too, I think the next time I try it I might try a cheese sause over it to mix it up a little bit I havent tried it yet because it was good as is, but I'm addicted to trying new things so I'm going to have to make adjustments to see what we can do with your creation lol

Yes~ you can make lots of good healthy dishes with noodles or rice. I often times will save the leftover or extra plain noodles and freeze them for another dish a few days later. They are also great just to throw into soups for a heartier fare. Sounds like you have some tasty meals at your house.

Actually yes i get alot of compliments from family and friends that are over and have supper with us!!!

That was just a joke by the way!!!

That is a great idea. Actually, I like it, and I am sure that my sister will too, once I tell her, because she likes to use those same ingredients. I actually prefer something that is easy to make, so I usually do the same thing, take a very bland thing, and make it into something spectacular, and it always makes me feel good too. Good job.

Noodles - Noodles re my favourite. I love them with veggies and chilli. Also love them with chicken or beef.
My family prefers rice - I am the only noodlehead! I LOVE noodles and yours sounds yummy. Saturday night is take away (take out) night and while they're having McDonals or Hungry Jacks (Burger King) or pizza, I always order noodles from the local Noodle Café. YUM! It's what I'm having tonight:) Last week we went to a Korean restaurant here in Melbourne and I had sweet potato noodles with beef and vegetables. I asked for some chilli in there too and it was YUM! The noodles themselves were made from sweet potato. I'd never heard f them before but they were great!

But still the monosodium glutamate is disturboing my taste whenever I eat noodles, it's too much salt and it develops stones on our kidney.

That sounds really yummy. But, it would be great only with tomato ketchup. Will try making this sometime over the weekend. Thank you very much for sharing the recipe.

For real you would add tomato ketchup with your noodles?? I guess that is rather experimentational also!! I hope that you try this and that the ketchup does in fact add a good flavor for you!!!

I like noodles. I always make sure to add some veggies and egg with the noodles to make it a healthy. But I never add broccoli with noodles. my favourite veggi to add with noodles are cabbage and carrot. And ofcourse I add some onion in it.

Oh yes I have turned a packet of noodles into a meal with adding egg, tomato, spinach, you can do this with noodles which is great it does not take too long to make a meal especially when it has to do with noodles, and it can be very healthy for you as well.

Everything I cook is about taking something simple and making it healthy. We always have fresh vegetables with our meals, and they are always aw or steamed - never fried or cooked in oil or butter. Healthy meals are a LOT easier to cook than unhealthy ones!

I always overlook the poor humble noodles when I'm rummaging through the pantry to find something quick to eat. I will have to remember this one.....it sure sounds appetising, I'd be tempted to add a little soy or worcestershire sauce.
@ronita34 (3923)

16 Feb 07
I think that soy or worcestershire sauce would be an absolutely perfect addition to this and it would make it that much tastier. I am glad that i reminded you of the old noodles as i also just went through that faze of over looking them also ... LOL!

I have never tried turning a package of noodles into anything else but the noodles but from what you just posted I may have to start trying as what you made sounds pretty good. I love eggs and also try to eat broccoli and carrots quite a bit as well as those very healthy for a person. That is not a long time to prepare.
