When you are living on a student budget (esp. in Paris), and only have a hot plate and a mini fridge, preparing dinner becomes an exercise in creative thinking.

Last night’s invention of what I like to call  “rata-ramen-touille,” brings new meaning to “East meets West.”

Top ramen noodles (any flavor)
Canned ratatouille (assorted vegetables prepared in the Provençal way)

Heat ratatouille in pot on hot plate
Boil water and pour over ramen noodles
Discard flavor packet
Strain noodles
Mix with ratatouille

Et voila!!!

tastes like spaghetti, takes 5 min, costs only 3 euro, and makes enough food to feed me twice!

with a lil wine, cheese and bread on the side, you won’t find me complaining :)
