Lentil burgers, 3 questions

Lentil Burgers!
1 cup dried lentils, rinsed
3 cups water
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup button mushrooms, finely chopped
1/3 cup carrot, shredded
1 stalk celery, minced
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
1/4 teaspoon Sage
1 teaspoon Tamari
1/4 cup unbleached flour
1/4 cup rolled oats or bread crumbs
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

In a medium saucepan, bring the lentils and water to a boil, lower the heat, cover, and cook for 30 minutes until tender. Drain. In a medium skillet, steam the onion, carrot, mushrooms, and celery in the water, stirring to prevent sticking. Mix all of the ingredients together. Shape into patties and cook on a lightly oiled skillet, or bake in a 400 oven for 30 minutes. Turn once to brown on both sides.
Suprisingly kid friendly! Plus they tasted like Boca with the benefit of fresh veggies. The peanut butter and mustard sound weird, but trust me, it's good.

Now the questions:
Is there a way to replicate the junk-food Ramen noodle packet meal in a more healthy manner? I was thinking of replacing the noodles with angel hair or spaghetti, but what can I use for the seasoning? I was thinking soy sauce mixed with water, and some onion and garlic powder.
#2: Is there a good way to get a really ripe peach off the pit? I had a perfect one the other day and squished most of it trying to cut it.
#3: Maybe I'm the last person to know this, but isn't bonito flavoring (found in a lot of quick asian noodle meals) a fish flavor? I looked it up in the dictionary... can someone confirm or deny? Thaaaank you.
