Miso Spaghetti with Asparagus and Ground Pork

Miso Spaghetti with Asparagus and Ground Pork

I love asparagus, that's why there's a lot of it in this recipe! This pasta has only a few ingredients, so it'll be ready in no time.

Ingredients: Serves 2

180 to 200 g
Ground pork
120 g
6-7 thin stalks
Onion (roughly chopped)
1/2 small
Ginger (grated)
1 piece
1 1/2 tablespoons
●Soy sauce
1 scant tablespoon
2 teaspoons
1 tablespoon
Salt (to cook the pasta)
as needed
Sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon


1. Mix the ● ingredients together and set aside. Cut off the hard ends of the asparagus and slice diagonally into bite-sized pieces. Group the tips away from the rest of the asparagus pieces.
2. Begin boiling the spaghetti in plenty of salted boiling water.
3. Add sesame oil to a frying pan and heat over medium-low. Stir fry the ginger until fragrant. Add the ground pork and onion and stir fry until the meat is cooked through.
4. Add the mixed ● ingredients to the pan and mix to coat everything with the seasoning. Remove about 5 tablespoons of the boiling water from the pasta pot and add it to the pan.
5. 2-3 minutes before the spaghetti is done, add the asparagus stalks to the boiling spaghetti water. Throw in the asparagus tips a bit after that.
6. Quickly strain the cooked spaghetti and asparagus and add them to the frying pan from Step 4. Toss to combine everything. All done.
