This is the best Asian Pasta recipe! For those that follow me, you know I love Ramen Noodles! I decided to make my own Asian recipe (with inspiration from a Pinterest recipe by ohines) and I am so glad that I did! This would be a great pasta salad to take to a brunch, picnic or just as a meal like I did.

  1. This recipe looks tasty. I used to be a Correctional Officer in a maximum security prison. I was always astounded how creative convicts could be with ramen noodles, hot pots and random ingredients they were able to purchace fro their commisary. Some of their creations looked pretty good.
