Green Tea Pasta















I picked up this Green Tea Pasta at Trader Joe's a while back and finally got around to eating it. It was tasty, tho the green tea flavor was very, very mild. The DH (dear hubby) wasn't sure he could taste it at all. These Japanese-style noodles are made of organic wheat flour, organic buckwheat flour, green tea powder and water. I'll look for them the next time I'm at a Trader Joe's. (The closest one is about an hour away.)

I ate these warm with just a bit of butter (olive oil and parmesean would be nice, too). I also think they'd hold up well to various sauces.

These are great as a base for an Asian-style noodle bowl too. I add stir-fried tofu and veggies, fresh ginger, soy sauce, garlic, and toasted sesame seeds. :)

Am I the only person who thinks Trader Joes products have been going down in quality recently? Anyways in Japan they have some recipes where you just add some loose leaf green tea to your pasta. It works like a spice. I have to say thats pretty good.

Oh my god, that could be a great addition to my Asian night. My lady friends and I hold dinners with various themes and this might be a good addition. We usually do green tea (flowering tea), rice with meat of some sort, and finish everything off with mochi ice crea. Thanks for a great idea!
