This is one of the most strangely delicious mashups we’ve ever tasted. It reminds us of when Japanese Italian restaurants were all the rage in Hawaii (where Cindy’s mom was born and raised) back in the day. Don’t believe us? Search for “Japanese style pasta” or “wafu pasta” (wafu means Japanese-style). It is still a thing!
We’ve created two versions of this recipe—one with chicken and one with mushrooms and peas for vegetarians/vegans. Looking forward to hearing what you all think of it!
This is a singular dish that needs no accompaniment—we suggest serving it on its own, followed by some mango sorbet for dessert.
