Cooking for college: Pimp your ramen! 

And other dorm room dinner recipes

Microwave mac and cheese. Pizza delivery. Ramen noodles. Repeat. It's a wonder more college students don't die of scurvy. Sure, there are healthy options at the dining hall salad bar, and of course there's no rule against opting for a veggie tofu wrap at Whole Foods over McDonald's drive-thru, but let's face it: When you're trying to fit meals between classes and parties, when you want breakfast at 2 p.m. and dinner at midnight, when you're on a strict $5 per day budget and cooking on a hot plate in your dorm room, good food just ain't that easy to come by. I'm here to help.

Don't worry — I'm not about to give you the mom speech. I want you to avoid going hungry, and to actually take pleasure in the food you consume. With that in mind, here are a couple of recipes you can make easily on one burner using cheap ingredients, which you might even enjoy.
