What is Spaghetti Napolitan?

Spaghetti napolitan, also called neapolitan or naporitan, is a Japanese pasta dish that hails from the city of Yokohama (横浜), located in the Kanagawa prefecture. The dish was supposedly created after the end of World War II, by chef Shigetada Irie of the New Grand Hotel. It was a variation on the spaghetti with ketchup the US army used to eat during their occupation in Japan.
