Bacon and Cheese Pasta

Bacon and Cheese Pasta
Serves 2
Use any ramen brand/flavor as the 'flavor' packet is discarded. If you can find baked ramen or chuka soba noodles use them instead. Find shelf stable bacon often in the salad dressing aisle or meat department of most grocery stores. Olive oil packets can be found online through www.minimus.biz and www.packitgourmet.com Dry weight: 6 ounces
