Easy Tomato Pasta on Egg - Omelette wrapped Pasta?

Anyone knows the Japanese language equivalent of "Pasta"? Well, I would like to have a more appropriate name for a dish spawn from omuraisu (omelette rice). Haha!

If there is omu (omelette)-raisu (rice), why not omu-"pasta" ? What I was missing out was just wrapping the pasta up within the enclosing omelette. Hmmm....ok, I am making a fuss out of this. I just wanted something different (and EGG-tra) for my pasta and why not this? Those who enjoys tomato ketchup on their omelettes may like this dish. That is no tomato ketchup in here but you get tomato-based pasta sauce/gravy on your omelette-style egg! ^o^

Easy Pasta on Egg/Omelette Tomato Pasta
cooked pasta, minced pork(chicken or beef,you wish), diced shrimps, minced garlic, sliced onions, can of diced tomatoes, salt and black pepper, basil/oregano dried herbs(option) PLUS additional two-three eggs

1. Fry the egg like an omelette, set aside. At the same time, you can cook your pasta according to package instructions. Any shell or screwy pasta is recommended since it will be easier to eat with the egg.
2. Saute the onions in olive oil till they soften. Add in garlic and minced pork and cook till the pork is almost cooked(from pink to light brown).
3. Add in the shrimps. As they are diced, they will cook very quickly.
4. Add in diced tomatoes with the juice
5. Mix well, add salt and black pepper to taste
6. Before serving, add in cooked pasta, toss well in the tomato-based pasta sauce and serve on the omelette


You can try these pasta dishes on omelette too!
Beef and Mushroom Pasta with Bok Choy
Mushroom Beef Pasta with Spicy Sauce

As long as the sauce is not a soup, tomato-based or cream-based works fine on omelette; and it is best to use shell or screwy type pasta for ease of eating!
