Filipino Spaghetti

Filipino Spaghetti

Filipino Spaghetti is fairly easy to do. No fancy herbs. It is deep red in color and sweeter than the Italian version. And the ingredient that sets it apart the most, we use our very own red hot dogs in it!


Cook spaghetti noodles according to package instructions.

In a sauce pan or wok, sauté garlic and onions in cooking oil.

Add ground beef, ground pork, laurel leaves, bell pepper and a cup of water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Add tomato sauce or combination of banana catsup and tomato sauce, salt and pepper to taste then let simmer for another 10 minutes

Add brown sugar and hotdogs. Continue to simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

Optional: add hot sauce e.g. Tabasco for more spice if desired.

Serve with the cooked spaghetti noodles and grated cheese on top.
