Tuesday’s Cupful: Background on Japanese Spaghetti

Sweethearts in Japan

There is one huge trend in “Japanese-style Spaghetti.”  Most Japanese people love their spaghetti sauce on the sweeter side compared to Americans.  What does this mean?  Look for Japanese Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce recipes that may call for bits of carrot, celery, and even bell pepper.  In fact, numerous variations ask only for ketchup, which is sweet, as the main ingredient for the tomato-based sauce.  Japanese cooks may also add slivers of seaweed nori, bits of bacon, and maybe even a drizzle ofsoy sauce.
