Being a college student, you might not always have the time or ingredients to make exquisite meals every night. You may also not have the everyday leisure to spend copious amounts of money on quality restaurant cuisine. Often times getting creative with what’s in the fridge is the only option.

Ramen being one of the most staple college meals, often consumed for breakfast, lunch and dinner, can get stale on occasion. However, just simply adding leftovers from your fridge can bring a palate of new flavors to the dish. Spending the extra time preparing this meal may be well worth the effort.
