Spicy Curry Sausage Noodle

 I remember back in college, noodles is what we eat when we are broke or really lazy. I still eat noodle these days but for different reasons. First, you can never go wrong with a packet of noodles no matter how you make it. Second, it's just that good and finally it is a time saver. It's usually an option when I don't start making dinner until late, I'm looking for something easy or we just feel like eating Noodles. Yes, we have those days. One of the reasons I still love making it till this day is that I never make it the same way twice. I always add something different each time to change the flavor a bit, so it never really gets boring because it always taste different and frankly we don't eat it that often. 

A picture posted by a friend of mine on Instagram actually inspired this version of noodles and I really enjoyed it because this will be the second time I'll be making it like this without tweaking anything from the original recipe. I made this much because I wanted some left over for the following days, so feel free to reduce amount of noodles if you are cooking just for yourself or for two.
 Ingredients
13oz Smoked beef sausage, diced
4 packets Ramen Noodles with seasoning
1 tsp Black pepper
2 tsp Crushed red pepper
3/4 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Dried thyme
1 tsp curry powder
3 tbsp Olive oil
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 Medium onion, finely diced
  Directions
1. In a large pot bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add diced sausage and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Remove sausage from boiling water and set aside.
2. Bring water back to boil, add noodles and cook for exactly 3 minutes covered, stirring once or twice. Avoid cooking for too long to avoid noodles getting too soft and mushy. Drain noodles immediately and save about 2 cup of liquid.
3. In another large pan on medium heat, heat up olive oil, add garlic, allow to brown for few seconds. Add onions and sausage and saute for 3 minutes.
4. Add crush red peppers, black peppers, garlic powder, thyme, curry and 2 packet of noodle seasoning. Cook for another 2 minutes.
5. Turn heat to lowest, add noodles to pot content, stir till content is well mixed adding saved broth gradually to aid in breaking the noodle up.  Remove from heat. Add as much or little broth based on preference. I prefer mine not to be swimming in water so I added about 1/4 cup of broth. Serve and enjoy!

Looking back at my Food Photo album, I realize that I made a lot of dishes last year and had the intention to share them but never did. Most times I just change my mind, some of them are actually sitting as draft post in my blog. I think I'll just post a snap of a couple, at least if I don't provide details now, It can offer inspiration and you never know, I might just post the whole thing later.

Do you eat noodles in your house or incorporate it into other dishes? What's your favorite way to prepare or eat noodles?

  2. I like noodles and I spice it up whenever I make it. I enjoy my noodles with sauteed onions and other vegetables. If I eat noodles plain, it's probably because I'm really hungry or in a hurry.

    The sausages look yummy!!
