Grown-Up Ramen Noodles?

Every once in a while I indulge in college deja vu with a $.33 bag of Chicken Top Ramen. Since they cook so quickly, there must be ways to use them for fast and easy dinners (with or without the spice packet). I know about the summer ramen picnic salad thing (another guilty pleasure), but does anyone have ideas how to use them for more "mature" dishes?
I'm talking Top Ramen here (or its generic equivalent), not the ethnic gourmet variety.
