Salted Kelp Mushroom & Sausage Pasta

This salted kelp mushroom & sausage pasta was whipped up mostly with pantry ingredients. The button mushroom and sausage were in the freezer. The only fresh foods were the bell peppers & spring onions. So this pasta was great to me because I can whip it up even without much fresh food around. Best of all, it’s super easy and takes only 15 minutes!

SPECIAL INGREDIENT #1: SALTED KELP

Salted Kelp (Shio Kombu)
This savoury salted kelp is a recent discovery of mine from Daiso. The kelp adds an instant umami depth to this pasta dish. I have used this in my salted kelp cucumber salad recipe. Now, I am adding this to my pasta and I love it.

SPECIAL INGREDIENT #2: SOBA SAUCE (TSUYU/つゆ)

Soba Soup Sauce (Tsuyu)

This soba noodle sauce or tsuyu sauce (つゆ) is also from Daiso. My pantry is always stocked with this sauce as it is affordable and tasty. Usually, the soba sauce is diluted with water to make a dipping sauce (noodles/tempura) or soup base. This is the first time I’m using it as a stir-fry sauce and it totally rocks! Together, the salted kelp & soba sauce is a winning combination which adds instant flavour to any pasta. I saw this from watching those Japanese YouTube daily life videos where sometimes we get a glimpse of what Japanese cook for their daily meals.

  1. I would love to try the salted kelp. The pasta looks simple, yet very flavourful and tasty.

  2. The salted kelp and sausage add so much flavor to the pasta! The mushroom and pasta must have absorbed all these deliciousness. I have been adding sausage/hot dog to flavor up my egg frittata !
