Quick, easy and delicious. Kids gobbled it up. Used coleslaw mix added the carrots and cooked the turkey in a little sesame oil.

Very good! I made a few variations to the recipe. I used a 16 ounce bag of shredded cabbage, and teriyaki marinade because I had a little left in a bottle to use. I also had ground beef so used that instead. And because I didn't want that many peas I used what I had left of a frozen bag of mixed vegetables. I used oriental flavored ramen. I will make it again!

Delicious! I skipped the peas; instead, I used some tri-color bell peppers. Used fresh Chinese noodles instead of raman. Passed some Sriracha sauce at the table. It's a keeper!!!

This recipe was quick and easy. I made a few changes in order to use items I had on hand: instead of 6 cups of shredded cabbage, I used a 16 ounce bag of coleslaw mix. This had shredded carrots in it, but I still used the sliced carrots called for in the recipe. Also, I cooked the ground turkey, carrots, onion and garlic powder in about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. One last thing I added was 2 teaspoons of sesame oil, which I think gives it an authentic Asian flavor .... also, the ramen noodles I used were the oriental flavored. I will surely make this again ... maybe add a can of drained bean sprouts the next time! 5 stars for sure!

This is so quick and delicious. I buy the pre-shredded carrots and a bag of cole slaw mix in the produce section. What could be easier? I also omit the oil. The turkey browns nicely without it.
