Napolitan Spaghetti

Napolitan (ナポリタン) doesn't mean it's an Italian dish.

This is a classic cafe menu in Japan. (also known as Ketchup pasta / spaghetti)

Usually it's made with normal sausage, but my version uses chorizo to give it an extra heat and umami!! It's quick and easy one! So you can cook regularly!!
