Not every experiment turns out well...

To be honest, I don't remember where this recipe came from. I'm sure it wasn't from 101 Ways to Cook Ramen Noodles, which is a fun little cookbook (some of the 'recipes' are quite simple, but it's amazing the number of people who never think about adding anything to Ramen Noodles...). I want to say I got this recipe out of a magazine or saw it on-line somewhere. Wherever it was, I wouldn't bother trying to hunt it down. Because while I'm all for creative food, it still has to work.

The instructions were simple enough, and I think the theory was that the noodles would adhere to one another and form a crust of some sort. I don't know if I did anything wrong, or if there was some secret trick I missed, or I put too many toppings on it, but...

...when I went to 'serve' it, I ended up with a mess of noodles that looks like... well, a lot of things come to mind, none of them appetizing. The kindest thing to say would be it looks like a pile of noodles with a bunch of ingredients mixed in.

As far as edibility goes, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. The noodles are very bland and the consistency is odd after boiling and then baking. And if I wanted to achieve the same result with a lot less time and effort, I would just strain the noodles after boiling them and throw in meat and peppers and tomatoes and top it with cheese. But I'd still rather do that with real spaghetti noodles.

On a completely unrelated to pizza note, hello old stove in the picture! How I don't miss you (sorry, but it's true).
