Yeah, basically think of the "cup o noodle" stuff. It's ready in 6 minutes if you leave it in boiling water.
I prefer to buy a large cardboard pack with 12 of the package ones (not the cup ones) since these you can actually cook with. Split it down the middle (so you end up with two flat cakes), put it in about an inch of boiling water and by the time it boils down a bit it's ready for stir frying, or use more water and add frozen veggies for a soup.
I once spent a couple of months (maybe 3) with no income and almost no savings... ramen and rice saved my life. That and a friend who bought me groceries a couple of times.
