As it turns out, my version, while in no way authentic, is pretty good. And (bonus!) little j will eat it all mixed together. Plus this makes for an awesome week-night meal that is quick, simple, and easy to clean up.
So here it is (if you want the "real" version, there are lots of recipes out there):
Totally Inauthentic Ants on a Tree
1 pound ground pork (can substitute ground turkey, if desired)
1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 - 2 teaspoons soy sauce, depending on taste
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
6 - 8 ounces dried whole wheat spaghetti
One bunch scallions, minced (both green and white parts)
Cook spaghetti according to directions. While pasta is cooking, saute pork over medium heat. When pork is nearly done add ginger, garlic, soy sauce and pepper flakes.
Drain pasta and toss with pork mixture. Top with scallions.
