Mako DeyShrimp Soup Spaghetti

From Mako’s Kitchen – Let Mako herself introduce you to this recipe.

I grew up in the northern part of Japan, with long cold snowy winters. People in my hometown eat a lot of different soup during the cold weather. Soup Spaghetti is very popular in Japan. There are many different kinds of Soup Spaghetti: cream based, tomato based, or clear broth. As a busy mom, my dinner repertoire is something I can fix quickly and easily. Can’t come up with any dinner ideas? You can make many endless variations of this recipe using whatever protein, vegetables and stock you have around. Just cook some pasta, gather all the leftover veggies, add some protein and some broth. You, too, can make Japanese Soup Spaghetti!
