RAMEN SURPRISE- No Meat Wednesday

Today was a pretty good one food wise. For lunch Mom made some "ribs" (fake TVP rib meat in BBQ Sauce) and some pasta. For lunch at work I had my Bean burritos and I altered this Ramen Surprize Recipe
Ramen Noodle Surprise
2 pkgs. ramen noodles (any brand) cooked and drained
1 Package of Morningstar farms Recipe Starters Crumbles
seasoning packet from ramen noodles (omitted for today- no meat wednesday)
1 C grated cheese
1 can of mushrooms
Saute crumbles in about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. Boil Ramen noodles as directed on pkg. Remembering to double water amount. Do not cook longer than directed. Drain noodles and set aside. Drain the oil from the crumbles and add seasoning packet to meat. Stir well. In rectangular pan (spray with vegetable spray or take a paper towel or small kitchen towel and rub baking pan with olive oil) place drained ramen noodles. Next spread ground beef on top. Final layer is grated cheese. Place in oven (400) and heat until cheese is melted.
Now this would be an easy recipe to make "Spaghetti Pie" with (another old comfort food fave)

For desert I had a handful of dehydrated honeydew melon- Honey Dew and Cantaloupe are great to Dehydrate- they taste just like candy! I have heard watermelon is good too
