I just had this for lunch (at my desk) and it is another instant Evergreen! It worked well with the dehydrated peas I used, because I don't have freeze-dried. And I didn't have olives. But otherwise, I made it exactly the same! This is appears to be one of those flexible recipes that will thrive on additions of whatever else you have that sounds good at the time. Except mushrooms, which goes without saying.
To update the pint freezerbag conversation in another thread, something possessed me last night and I drove 24 miles to Winco in Marysville. They had cases of the pint freezerbags! I got a blank look from the guy when I asked about baked ramen. Is it in with the regular ramen in the stores where it still exists? Or have you been everywhere already? I'm thinking of trying a Fred Meyer in a town I won't name, so as not to give you ideas.
