  • A Ramen stew is quick and easy - brown some ground beef or turkey, add water and the ramen noodles, as well as some frozen vegetables and the seasoning packet.

    For the mom who said mac 'n' cheese with hot dogs - just add some frozen veggies to the water for the last few minutes the pasta is cooking, and prepare the rest as usual! You get the added bonus of what's basically veggies in cheese sauce :)
