Contrary to the Italians, our spaghetti is fairly sweet, deep red in color, no fancy herbs and the stuff that really sets it apart from the rest, slices of our own red hotdogs!

This recipe is for a big batch of spaghetti (1 kilo/2.2 lbs for party needs) so just go on and scale it down if your planning to try it.

  • 2.2 lbs spaghetti noodles, cooked according to package directions. (personal preference, I rinse my noodles in tap water after cooking then let them sit on a strainer. we do not mix the spaghetti into the sauce as we cook so this kinda helps to avoid them from sticking to each other)
  • 1 cup minced white onions
  • 1 head garlic minced
  • 1.65 lbs ground beef
  • 1.65 lbs hotdog sliced diagonally
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 26.5 oz plain spaghetti sauce
  • 1 small bottle banana ketchup (tomato ketchup would do but use just about 3/4 of a cup)
  • 1/2 cup beef stock (plain water would do to)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • quick melting cheese to garnish

How to make Filipino Style Spaghetti

  1. Saute garlic and onions. Add in the beef and cook till brown. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Add the hotdogs in and let cook for about 3 minutes making sure it heats through. Sauce is done!
