How To Make Naporitan - Japanese Pasta Dish

      Last night, I made naporitan, which is a Japanese pasta dish, for dinner. When I was a child, naporitan was one of my favorite school meals. It was mostly creamy ketchup taste and so good. You might think why Japanese people use ketchup for pasta! Why don't they know about Italian cuisine? However, it is actually delicious. Japanese people have eaten naporitan since 1950's, and as I mention in my previous entry, it was chosen one of popular Japanese foods by foreign tourists in Japan this year. :) If you have never tried Japanese pasta dishes, you really should try naporitan! I'm going to share how to make naporitan with you.
