If you love savory ramen and cheesy lasagna, in the great words of the classic Old El Paso commercial, “Porque no los dos?” Combining both foods might seem weird at first, but TikTok‘s @ramenkingivan proved to the world that you can have your ramen lasagna and eat it too — er, you know what I mean.
Not only am I obsessed with the TikTok video set to the beat of Championxiii’s “BOO!,” but I also love just how easy this dish is to put together. All you have to do is layer precooked ramen (I used the roast chicken flavor) with tomato sauce and cheese, and you’ll have an incredibly delicious (and unique) dinner in 45 minutes. The final result is cheesy and gooey, with the kind of flavor ramen is known for. It honestly works really well together, and the texture of the ramen noodles gives it a bit of crunch (making the outside edges slightly crispy is highly recommended). This dish is perfect for quick weeknight meals or any other time you’re craving cheesy pasta with a bit of a flavor twist. You can even experiment and try using different flavors of ramen noodles, and also feel free to add any additional vegetables to your layers if you’d like.
