How to make “Spaghetti” in 5 minutes

I tried a little experiment yesterday [evil laugh]. Before I proceed, there are a few things you should know about me.

At my best, I’m very lazy. I’m not too fond of greasy foods, my second best friend is the microwave, and I like to keep things simple – super simple. Also, I’d like to acknowledge the fact that I have a very caring family back home. If they ever get to find out what I’m eating, specifically my grandparents, I’ll have to face the noise when I get back home like the time when I got a “different” haircut. Nonetheless, I like taking risks and spontaneity, whether I like it or not, just keeps following me around, like male dogs do to a you know what. I can’t help myself, really!

If you’re a busy, hardworking person, I’m sure you’ve came home one day not knowing what to cook (I’m also sure you have a microwave and a can opener). This happens to me all the time. Today, we’ll put an end to that. I’ll be showing you how to make spaghetti with Ramen noodles. As you might have guessed, we’ll be using a microwave, a can opener and the following:


  1. 2 cups water
  2. 2 pack ramen soup
  3. 1 can chicken sausage from the chiney man on the corner
  4. Spaghetti sauce (I used tomato sauce – big mistake*)
  5. 1/4 pound of cheese

*Tomato paste/sauce is not the same as spaghetti sauce. Spaghetti sauce is seasoned, tomato sauce is flavorless. That was a big boo-boo on my part.

Tip: Don’t buy ghetto tomato sauce in a can because guess what – it WILL taste like can!


1- Pour 2 cups water in a microwaveable dish, add 2 servings of ramen noodles and heat for 4 minutes.

2- While heating, chop up your chicken sausage in whatever shapes you’d like.

3- Chop up some cheese (diced preferably). Squares are better than circles and easier to get – trust me, been there, done that.

4- Once done, remove noodles from microwave, drain out hot water and set on a plate. Do not add seasoning.=

5- Pour tomato sauce on noodles.

6- Sprinkle the good stuff (sausage and cheese) on top.

7- Mix and enjoy.

Well, there you have it folks, “Spaghetti” in 5 minutes. I’m sure that anyone would agree that this is more than a just a meal. This is how I did it. You can do it your way, but am sure mine will always taste better (what a shame).

Words cannot describe. Yummy! The landlord’s coming over tomorrow; I guess I’ll save some for him.
