Wednesday’s Helping: Asian Spaghetti Fixings

Top it off or cook it into the sauce

We have more suggestions from Japan and even the Philippines to change things up in your traditional spaghetti recipe.  Try adding a swig of sake, soy sauce, or even or okonomi sauce.  Japanese also like using shrimp, shellfish, or squid instead of red meat.  Cod roe is also a very popular ingredient in some Japanese pasta dishes.  Meanwhile, cooks in the Philippines like adding sliced hot dogs – yes regular wieners - to their renditions of spaghetti.  Filipinos also add up to one cup of Velveeta or plain shredded cheddar cheese so the result resembles and tastes like lasagna.
