It's a super simple comfort food recipe. I grew up eating this as a kid, primarily because like most kids, I was kind of lazy and it was easy to make since being Asian, the ingredients for this dish was always available.
When I was young and poor living on my own, it made a great alternative to ramen since the ingredients were cheap and it made a lot.
You can also substitute the sesame oil with butter and even cheese. —MutantRobo
