Meet The Manufacturer: #1992: Nissin Cup Noodle Light Ratatouille

Hey think I’ve seen a movie with this name. But I know the dish ratatouille existed long, lobg before it. What’s ratatouille? Wikipedia, if you please:

Ratatouille (/ˌrætəˈt/ rat-ə-too-ee; French: [ʁatatuj]) is a traditional FrenchProvençalstewedvegetable dish, originating in Nice. Though referred to commonly as ratatouille niçoise,[1] ratatouille is popular among the entire Mediterranean coast as an easy summer dish.[2] It is typically prepared as a stew with each vegetable being sautéed separately before being layered into a baking dish and baked.

Okay so lots of vegetables and it’s French. Sounds good – not only that, this stuff is seriously low-cal, clocking in at a low 198 calories. Let’s check it out.

Here’s noodle block. Notice how it has a kind of divet on the top (which actually is the bottom).

A lot of vegetables here, that’s for sure.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are definitely notr the same as the standard Cup Noodle style noodle. They seem to be non-fried and have a nice rigidity and crumble. The broth has a nice tomato bite to it which was very enjoy able, and the vegetables were not only excellent but omnipresent. One of the better ‘health conscious’ instants I’ve tried. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4902105237007.
