Really delicious and hard to get wrong. Plus it's one of the few noodle dishes on here that uses common ingredients, so it's perfect for when you realise you're hungry and the shop is closed.

i tried this but swapped the bacon for lightly grilled chicken breast cut into small pieces and it was amazing would also recommend swapping the worchester sauce for soy sauce and adding a touch of chilli

This is a huge hit with my fiancé and I - we sometimes add extra ingredients (diced sweet peppers, mushrooms and chilli flakes).

Loved this recipe, so quick and easy whilst being healthy and really filling! I could only just finish it which really surprised me. Definitely making again :)

I really like this; I get to eat super noodles while not feeling guilty about it :p I replaced the smoked bacon for normal bacon though and I use onion rather than spring onion. I love how it's so cheap and ridiculously idiot proof.

Quick and easy to make as a good snack, but definitely not as a main. I thought it was quite nice, but my husband found it way too bland for his tastes.

The timings are way out, so leave aside at least 25 minutes for this (in my experience). I couldn't quite get the paste, though I assume this was my fault, but it appears to have made no particular difference to the taste (again, this might just be me). The meal does not scale well, though.

I had to use chicken stock instead of vegetable stock, sweet chilli sauce instead of paprika, and soy sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce and it turned out really nice. I also used a wok and a wok ring, anyone having trouble thickening it should use that as it evaporates the excess water very quickly :)
