Spaghetti Napolitan is basically a Japanese-style spaghetti dish, using ketchup as the pasta sauce. 🍝🥫 But before you roll your eyes, gag or scoff at it, you just have to trust that this recipe is going to be delicious because it’s from The Gaijin Cookbook by Ivan Orkin @ramenjunkie and Chris Ying @chrisyingz.
First, you soften some onions, sweet peppers and mushrooms in *bacon fat.* Then you cook down the ketchup (+ some pasta water) into a deeply-flavored and sweet tomato sauce, toss it with spaghetti, and finish with a generous pat of butter to make everything silky. To make it even better, top with some crispy bacon, parmesan, and lots of Tabasco to complete this dish. Find the full detailed recipe in The Gaijin Cookbook @gaijincookbook.
