1/4 kilo ground pork

8 pcs hotdogs, sliced

2 medium onions, diced

2 small cloves garlic, peeled and minced

2 tbsps cooking oil

salt & pepper

500 g spaghetti (I prefer angel hair pasta)

saute your garlic and onions, add in the ground meat,

Pour in water (let the meat cook until it boils) lower the temperature my friends and then season it with salt and pepper,

pour the tomato sauce, next is ketchup, and cheese. Stir regularly and let it simmer, slowly add the sugar, taste a little so you will know if you need to add more.

add the hotdogs,

cook the sauce until thick,

lastly put the bay leaf once out of the fire 🙂

sweet style spaghetti

pinoy style spaghetti

this is my version of sweet (Pinoy) style spaghetti, for Filipinos we like our food to either be salty or sweet. Sounds unhealthy right, but it won’t matter until you taste our local cuisine and delectable dishes. When spaghetti was introduced to us, we added our secret ingredient – banana ketchup! yes, that adds the right amount of sweetness to the sauce. No formal schooling or training here, good cooking just comes out naturally. I’ve learned that if you have the right skills (from experiences) or gene-acquired talent plus good taste you can cook any dishes you want. And that reminds me of the movie Ratatouille – “Not everyone can be an artist, but an artist can come from anywhere…”
