Family favourite noodles with tomatoes

About this recipe: This is a quick, cheap and simple recipe, that me and my family all love. I have grown up with this as one of my favourite all-time comfort foods. I often used to have this whenever I visited my grandma, and was something me and my siblings would actually look forward to during our stay. The great thing about this recipe is that you can add anything else you fancy, and it still tastes yummy!

Serves: 1 

  • 1 packet beef flavoured super noodles (or similar)
  • 1/2 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 beef OXO® cube
  • Maggi® liquid seasoning or Worcester sauce to taste

Prep:2min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:7min 

  1. Boil water in a pan according to the measurements on the noodle packet.
  2. Crumble the stock cube into the pan of water and stir, ensuring the cube has completely dissolved. Add the flavouring sachets from the noodle packet to the water, stirring as you do so.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes to the mixture and stir again. Next add several drops of the Maggi® seasoning, stir and taste, add more if needed.
  4. Break up the noodles in the packet before adding to the pan, and stir occasionally until the noodles are soft, and most of the water has been absorbed.
  5. Leave to stand for a minute or two before serving onto a plate or bowl. Enjoy!


Double, treble or quadruple the ingredients to increase the number of servings.
You can add almost anything to this dish - chopped chicken, ham, cooked bacon, celery, etc. Simply add it in with the tomatoes.
This is a versatile recipe that allows you to add or take away flavourings, depending on your own requirements. This recipe is based on my own preferences, simply adapt it to suit your own tastes.
