Recipe: Tomatodoria

There are many versions of Tomatodoria. This recipe is from Japan. Tomatodoria was introduced from the Western world to Japan, beginning of 20th. century. It is basically a tomato base sauce (Napolitana) with ground beef and in some cases, you sprinkle with cheese. A lot of Japanese prefer to omit the cheese.
