Japanese styled pasta (aka wafuu pasta) was introduced in Japan in the 70s. By using Japanese ingredients with Italian pasta, wafuu pasta creates its own distinct character and taste. For this recipe, the taste of mentsuyu mixes perfectly with tuna and mushrooms for a savory flavor.
I got the recipe for my favorite flavored soy sauce, Shiso Garlic Soy Sauce from Cookpad.com. This original recipe created a huge sensation in Japan a couple years ago. This recipe has only 3 ingredients, but the combination of Shiso, garlic, and soy sauce is pretty amazing. I love this sauce so much that I always keep replenishing the ingredients so it’s always ready to go when I need it.
