Kabocha Pork Stir Fry

Kabocha Pork Stir Fry

It's the beginning of fall and various pumpkin recipes are starting to appear on websites and magazine. It made me think of sharing this easy and quick Kobocha recipe today. Kabocha is sometimes referred to as Japanese pumpkin or Kabocha squash in the US. It's a very nutritious vegetable with a very sweet flavor, even sweeter than butternut squash and it is rich in beta carotene. I used Korean seasoning called Gochujuang (hot pepper paste) for flavoring this dish.

Usually when we make potato salad at home, there are leftover for the next day. One of my favorite dish when I was growing up was potato salad pork roll. Using the leftover from the previous day, my mother would roll it up with thinly sliced pork. This dish brings back nostalgic memories.

Spaghetti Meat Sauce

Spaghetti Meat Sauce

I love spaghetti with meat sauce! Growing up in Japan, I would order spaghetti with meat sauce every time we go to a western restaurant. I have many variation of the meat sauce recipes but this is definitely one of my favorite. Remember to get some fresh Parmesan cheese and grate it right before eating.
