Spaghetti Napolitan

This is a Japanese pasta dish called spaghetti Napolitan. Ketchup is used to flavour the pasta instead of a marinara/tomato sauce. Lighting was poor so the shot I took of the pasta dressed with some green onion for colour was out of focus so you’ll have to use your imagination.


I used fresh hot Italian sausages and mushrooms but the rest of the dish was based on this recipe.

    1. Thank you. Another post I’d forgotten all about until today when it dropped. I started it about a month ago and then just never finished it.

      It’s one of 3 Japanese-Western dishes I had planned on making … along with the chicken doria that I posted and a macaroni gratin that I haven’t made yet … dishes served in old fashioned Japanese diners (kissaten).

    1. There’s a touch of sweetness and the complexity of the different ingredients in ketchup itself gives a nice taste. I’m doing more one and 2 serving recipes these days as I don’t have to cook at the end of a working day. The joys of retirement. 😉
