The dry seasoning base.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added barbecue pork and spring onion, fried garlic, and chili flake. All in all, things end up very tasty. The only problem is that everything is extremely dry, which isn’t how I usually find spaghetti to be. Just seemed a little on the off side. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901726005040.

#2268: Nissin Nupasta Neapolitan Flavour Instant Noodle

This one is leftover from the Nissin Hong Kong Meet The Manufacturer I did a little while back! They sent almost 60 different unique varieties of instant noodles! Thanks again – rarely does a company do something like this! So these Nupasta varieties have been really enjoyable thus far. This one looks like a noodle with marinara sauce. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 250ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sauce sachet contents. Stir well over medium heat until sauce thickens. Enjoy!

Has a sweet tomato scent.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Chinese sausage. Well, what we have here is basically instant spaghetti! The noodles are nice – slightly softer than your standard spaghetti but they’ll do just fine. What I like here is that the sauce has a very sweet taste – a flavor I like better than most spaghetti sauces have. This works well. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4897878190027.
