I suggest using this recipe to make lettuce wraps, add some water chestnuts maybe some fresh ginger.

There's just a problem with the way the recipe is written. In the directions it states to break up the ramen noodles and set them aside but it never says what we're supposed to do with them. Obviously you add them in but it doesn't say that anywhere.
