You won't get a tall muscle bound Italian dude with hairy arms when you pour hot water into this thing.
What you will get is a hot steamy lunch of noodles and tomato sauce. It seems Nissin's Cup Noodle line is no longer limited to instant ramen, but italian food too.
Aimed mainly at young consumers, Big Italian uses smooth firm noodles in a rich tomato soup, with a base of chicken bouillon, and flavored with olive oil, basil and oregano.
But there's more. Each cup is garnished with extras like crab flavored kamaboko [steamed fish and starch loaf], squid, Mozzarella cheese, green asparagus, cabbage and red bell peppers.
You'll find this in Japanese markets, and asian food stores in the USA.
