SAUCE: put dry mixture into jar, add the 1/2 c. of water; cover tightly, shake ’til smooth.   Put into saucepan,  heat on medium high, stir constantly  with wire whip until thickened.  Add margarine, stir to melt; take off heat; cover 1 minute. Mean- while, drain ramen.  Mix in to alfredo sauce; stir.  Makes 1 serving.

[**you may be able to use pasta for less than the ramen. 2 oz. of dry pasta is a serving;  thus it may be financially advantageous to use pasta instead]
