I had a couple of Very Ripe Tomatoes that needed to be used up, and a couple of partially-cut into onions, so I decided on a whim to make pasta sauce. And as I was sauteeing the onions, I thought, “What if I added some ginger to this? And maybe some soy sauce? And then ate it on RAMEN NOODLES??”
So, here you go. You can thank my random aging vegetables for the creation of this dish.
Asian-Style Pasta Sauce – with RAMEN.
In a little oil, sautee together:
1 c white onion, chopped
1 1/2 c red onion, chopped
While the onion is cooking, add:
2-3 cloves minced garlic
1 T grated fresh ginger
Sautee together until onion is tender.
2 T soy sauce
1 c chopped tomatoes
1 tsp paprika
Simmer over low heat until sauce is reduced as much as you like. I didn’t time mine, but it was at least half an hour. And then I let it sit a while.
I cooked 2 packages of Ramen according to the directions (just the noodles) and mixed it all up.
And then I ate it with some sesame seeds sprinkled liberally on top.
