My Mommy's Napolitan-Style Yakisoba Noodles

My Mommy's Napolitan-Style Yakisoba Noodles

I wanted to eat Napolitan (a Japanese spaghetti dish) using yakisoba noodles! There's no need to pre-boil the noodles for this. It's a hearty dish that my mom used to make for me when I was growing up.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Green bell peppers
5 slices
Fish sausage
Yakisoba noodles (plus the seasoning pack that comes with it)
2 packs
3 tablespoons
Grated cheese
to taste (optional)


1. Slice the onion 2 mm thick.
2. Cut up the bacon into 1 cm pieces.
3. Cut the fish sausage in half lengthwise and slice on the diagonal into 2mm wide slices.
4. Cut the bell peppers into half and slice 2 mm thick.
5. Heat some oil in a frying pan (you can omit the oil if you're using a non-stick pan) and stir fry the bacon until it's spitting.
6. Add the onion and stir-fry until wilted. Add the bell pepper; when that has wilted, add the fish sausage.
7. Add the yakisoba noodles and stir-fry. When the noodles are done, add the seasoning that comes with the noodles, then add the ketchup.
8. Transfer to serving plates, sprinkle with grated cheese and serve.
9. To use in bentos, divide into small portions and wrap each portion in plastic wrap, followed by aluminum foil. Freeze. These portions will keep for about 2 weeks. Take the foil off before defrosting in the microwave.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was involved in sports when I was in middle school, (which was like 20-odd years ago...) and was hungry all the time. So I used to eat tons of easy recipes like this one made by my mom. Even now that I'm an adult, I seem to have the same big appetite...why?!
