Spicy Mandarin Noodles

50 mins (prep 45, cooking 5)
11 ingredients
2 servings
I created this for the Dining on a Dollar cooking contest, November 2008. Since the contest was a penny-pinching contest, I did not use meat or very many exotic ingredients. Just basics you might have around the house. I did not waste or throw anything away, all of the juice from the oranges is used as well as the sauce packet from the ramen noodles. The ramen sit in a marinade before they are cooked so this softens the noodles and as they sit, the starch from the noodles thickens the sauce so be sure and let them sit for at least the 45 minutes. Then the noodles cook in their marinade giving them a spicy orange flavor. I hope you like them!
