Spaghetti Napolitan (スパゲテイナポリタン)




I never really liked pasta dishes, mainly because they are mostly with cheese. However this is different. Spaghetti Napolitan is a Japanese dish, claimed to have originated from Yokohama. It’s tomato ketchup based.

  1. Spaghetti
  2. Handful of button mushroom, or as I like to call it Champignon, Portobello, or Agaricus bisporus
  3. Pork loin ham, sliced. I used pork meat for stew instead, and sliced them thinly
  4. Tomato ketchup, 3 tbs
  5. 1/4 of bell peppers, sliced into stripes
  6. 1/2 an onion, sliced
  7. 1 clove of garlic, minced
  8. Olive oil, 2 tbs
  9. Butter, 1 tbs
  10. Salt


  1. Add salt into a large pot of water, and start to boil it, and let it simmer
  2. Heat up a pan, and swirl in olive oil
  3. As soon as the pan is hot enough, throw in the onion, and lightly brown the surface on medium heat
  4. Add in the garlic, and fry till you can smell the aroma of the garlic
  5. Add in the pork, mushroom, and bell peppers, fry till the pork is cooked
  6. Pour in the tomato ketchup into the pan, and add in 3 tbs of boiled water from your other pot
  7. Mix the sauce evenly and turn off the stove
  8. Boil the spaghetti according the instructions on the packaging
  9. Once the spaghetti is softened (al dente), drain the water, and add the spaghetti into the pan
  10. On medium heat, stir the mixture of pork and spaghetti together, and add the butter, stir fry till the butter melts completely
  11. Serve with some parsley on top as garnish !
