Put all the ● ingredients into a pan and bring to a simmer. The dish will taste better if you make a proper dashi using bonito flakes!
Add all the ★ ingredients to the pan, and simmer until cooked through. The mushrooms should turn very limp.
Taste, and adjust the seasoning by drizzling in a little shiro-dashi (or salt if you don't have shiro-dashi). Add yuzu pepper paste to taste, and thicken the sauce with katakuriko.
Pour the sauce generously over freshly cooked pasta, and top with plenty of chopped green onions and shredded nori seaweed. Done!
This is better with plenty of yuzu pepper paste. It's a delicious ankake sauce pasta made with dashi stock. Hope you give it a try.
You can make the dashi by using a dashi pack too. Or you can put bonito flakes in a dashi 'tea bag'. In any case, I do recommend making a proper dashi stock for this dish.
