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.
