I believe different types of dish has the power to change how people feel. When it’s hot and sunny outside, the cool crisp salad tastes extra refreshing. Personally, whenever the weather is cold and raining I always crave some comfort food. This easy to prepare cream penne pasta will quickly warm you up. It’s easy and simple but it tastes goooood! My kids had seconds or thirds and they both said “Hmmmm it’s yummy!!” Think bacon, pasta, cabbage, and cheese broiled in the oil.
I feel today’s recipe should get a lot of attention. Japanese love Ramen but I learned from my Taiwanese American husband and his friends that the Chinese love ramen even more! In most Japanese supermarkets you can buy an assortment of fresh ramen noodles with prepped soup base in the refrigerated section. The typical flavors available are shio (salt), shoyu (soy sauce), tonkotsu (pork stock), and miso. The different ramen flavors originated from different parts of Japan. Shoyu is from Kanto (Tokyo) area, tonkotsu from Kyushu in the south, and shio and miso are from Hokkaido in the north.
It may not be as perfect as your favorite ramen shop noodles, but homemade Chashu ramen is relatively easy and tastes pretty good!
