These Ramen Recipes Are The Perfect Way To Spice Up Your Dorm-Room Cooking

By

It's back-to-school time, and we all know what that means: Back-to-school shopping.

Personally, the most exciting part of back-to-school shopping was buying new school supplies. There's nothing I looked forward to more than a new pack of pencils, notepads and folders.

But along with new binders and pens, I also loved to do back-to-school food shopping.

At the beginning of each semester, I was always ambitious when it came to cooking. But as time went on, the one dish I always turned to when I was too lazy to cook was Top Ramen noodles.

Ramen is a staple in everyone's dorm room.

It's the best comfort food when you've had a long day at the library, or you're too hungover to make it to the campus cafeteria.

After a while, however, eating plain Ramen can become a bore. Sure, it's salty and satisfying, but sometimes it could use a little more.

Here are some creative ways to spice up your Ramen. Trust me, you'll be the biggest hit on the dorm floor.
