Serve this Asian pasta in a bowl with a spoon as well as a fork so that you can get all the flavorful broth. We use spaghettini here, but if you have dried Chinese egg noodles, by all means use them.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a medium stainless-steel saucepan, combine the broth, soy sauce, vinegar, mirin, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, sugar, and salt. Bring just to a simmer, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the spaghettini until almost done, about 8 minutes. Drain. Return the pasta to the pot.

Step 3

Add the hot ginger broth to the pasta along with the cabbage and tofu. Bring back to a simmer and cook for 1 minute. Add the pork and scallions. Remove from the heat and let sit until the pork is just done, about 1 minute.

Step 4

Wine Recommendation: With an assertive dish like this, the wine should have plenty of acidity and very little delicacy. A California sparkling wine or a Vouvray (made from chenin blanc grapes) would be best.

Step 5

Notes: In place of mirin, a sweet low-alcohol Japanese cooking wine, you can use 3 tablespoons sweet sherry, or 3 tablespoons dry sherry plus 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar.
