Pasta also works, but the nice texture of the thick frozen udon noodles with mentai cream melds well together, and is so delicious . You can easily make this in the microwave just using one bowl.
I love frozen udon noodles, so I enjoy it with various pasta sauces.I have tons of pasta-style udon noodle recipes in my repertoire!
For those of you that like shiso leaves, add two leaves for more deliciousness.Of course you can use boiled udon or pasta noodles instead of frozen udon.You don't have to add garlic if the smell bothers you, but I recommend it.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
