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.
