Pasta Recipe 4 – Omusupa


In Japan there are some OMU-dishes. OMU means an omelette, and the most popular
OMU-dish in Japan is definately OMURICE.  You make fried rice with chicken and
ketchup and wrap it in an omelette. It is very common to make it at home and also eat
at many restaurants. Variations always follow as OMUSOBA (fried noodle wraped in
an omelette), OMU CHA-HAN (chinese-type fried rice wrapped in an omelette),
OMUTACO is available in Okinawa prefecture (tacos and rice wrapped in an omelette)
and I made today this OMUSUPA (spaghetti wrapped in an omelette).  I am sure you can
create your own OMU dish if you can manage to wrap it with an omelette! Any new idea?
