My kids were visiting my sister one summer and with dinner my sister served something my kids had never seen before. She made ramen noodles and rice mixed together.
We have always eaten ramen noodles. We buy almost every flavor they make. We make them plain. We have cut up both chicken and beef and added the meats to the noodles. My sister though added rice to the noodles. My kids loved it.
The sauce pack that comes with ramen noodles is very high in sodium. If you add flavored rice to the noodles, you do not need to use the sauce pack. If you add white rice to the noodle packet you'll use the sauce pack but each serving has a lower amount of sodium since you've now added another item to the mixture.
My sister actually cuts up the noodles after boiling so that they are short like the rice kernels. Then she mixes the two together.
One other option is to make your own chicken broth or beef broth and then add both the package of ramen noodles and also the white rice. You will not be using the sauce pack and you can also add cut up vegetables and pieces of chicken or beef to the mixture.
I actually found a blog that is all about ramen noodles http://mattfischer.com/ramen/ . This blog features recipes, commentary, and tons of information about ramen noodles.
