In this episode Joe tests three Buzzfeed instant ramen recipes. Can instant ramen noodles really become all these other dishes and actually taste any good? Sometimes these ramen hacks just look too weird. And at Pretty Good Videos, we're all a bit obsessed with ramen noodles, but we generally stick to the basic ramen recipe and often just use the little silver packet. We had to know if peanut butter and Sriracha could really make a tasty spicy ramen noodle soup. And, could you really cook ramen noodles in butter, water, parmesan cheese and get an Italian cheesy ramen dish worthy of a nonna? And finally, once and for all, what does ramen taste like as the crust of a pizza?!? Buzzfeed Food is always up to some nutty ramen creations -- they're cheap eats. Great dorm food. Easy lunch recipes. Easy dinner recipes. BUT, it's time we know if they really work.

Watch as Joe walks you through it and get his full food review. He starts with the easy one: Spicy ramen noodles with peanut butter. Then comes the Italian ramen...cheesy ramen concoction. And then finally, the pizza ramen...crispy and delicious? Maybe. Maybe not. Then comes the taste test. Joe makes cooking seem super easy so if you're interested in knowing how to make something, ask in the comments.

Spicy Peanut Butter Ramen Noodles
* Instant ramen package, flavoring packet optional
* Hot sauce - preferably sriracha
* Soy sauce
* Crunchy peanut butter
Cook up the ramen according to the directions on the packet. Add a teaspoon of soy sauce, a squirt of Sriracha (to taste), and a dollop of crunchy peanut butter. Mix well, add some of the ramen water to make mixing easier. Eat!

Cheesy Italian Ramen (for fancy folks, this is Ramen Cacio e Pepe)
* Instant ramen packet, flavoring packet optional
* 2 kinds of Italian grated cheese
* butter
* black pepper
* olive oil
In a pot, add 1.5 cup water, 3 tablespoons butter, and 1 tablespoon olive oil and bring to a boil. Add the instant ramen (without the flavoring packet) and 2 cups grated cheese, bring to a simmer and let noodles soften while broth thickens. Add black pepper to taste. Eat!

Ramen Pizza Recipe
* instant ramen, no flavoring packet
* marinara sauce
* mozzarella cheese
* pepperoni or any other topics you like
Separate the noodle brick so that it's in 2 single layers. Top each layer with sauce, cheese and any other topics. Bake at 375 for 15- 20 minutes. Remove and eat! YUM!
