Filipinos have a distinct taste, they love it a little sweet and meaty. Filipino spaghetti is the Pinoy version of Spaghetti with meat sauce. In some countries, the spaghetti tasted a little sour and/or with big meatballs. Fo the Pinoy Style Spaghetti, it should have a lot of meat like ground pork, luncheon meat and hotdogs. It is one of the main menus when we have kid’s parties.
The Pinoy style spaghetti versions make us use the ready-made Filipino Style spaghetti sauce, you’ll see it in the grocery store labeled as “Filipino style tomato sauce”, rather than making your own sauce from a scratch, this is more timely and cost-efficient instead of making it from square one.
I guess Pinoy Style Spaghetti one of the best pasta recipes because we love it! Kids love to order it even in some fast-food chains like Jollibee or Mcdonalds. You’ll certainly enjoy it with fried chicken and cake when you attended a kid’s party.
Some Tips for cooking Pinoy Style Spaghetti
- You can use store-bought Filipino style tomato sauce but if it is not available or you’d like to make your own then the sugar will do the trick.
- Some recipes have banana ketchup to make a little bit sour and can be an additive but you can also cook it without.
- The cheese will make it yummier. You can put grated cheese on the sauce itself. Cheddar cheese is the most common, but if you have a budget then you can put some quick melt. If you have Queso de Bola then you can also use it.
- For the Pasta, make sure to follow the directions on cooking it so that it will stay Al dente.
- Milk can also give an addition to the yummy taste of the spaghetti.
