Nissin Big Cup Noodles puts an unconventional take on the classic instant ramen cup with experimental flavors like chicken nuggets and pizza or meals that feature 10 times more meat than usual. Now, Nissin is adding to this inventive line of instant noodle products with a lasagna-flavored variety.

The Italian-inspired cup of noodles takes inspiration from a classic dish and offers a mix of cheese and meat sauce. As such, the product is more like a spaghetti and meatball meal than the classic Japanese ramen dish.

Instant ramen noodles were once seen as an inexpensive yet comforting low-quality meal but the category is being entirely reinvented with a new wave of products that are unafraid to experiment with gourmet flavors and unexpected add-ins.
