"This is recipe given to me by a girlfriend which she got off a cooking show (she can't remember which one) but she o'kay it is not gourmet but it does taste pretty good and it is quick. Served with a salad and a healthy meal. No brand of 2 minute noodles was specified but could only get ZAAR to accept Maggi. Since found out it was James Reeson one of my favourite chefs and obviously an episode I missed."
