I as soon as talked about in my introduction that I gained’t be utilizing canned sauces in my recipes. Every little thing can be historically ready as a lot as doable, which implies no shortcuts. However, no, I can not apply that rule on this recipe.

The reason being Filipino Fashion Spaghetti is all the time ready with canned and bottled sauces. If I take advantage of recent tomatoes alone (which I do typically with olive oil –> yum!), it gained’t be Filipino model anymore. Tomatoes are usually not naturally candy, a minimum of that’s not how we acquired the style; it might be too bitter for the Filipino palate. Therefore, we add sugar and banana catsup to stability the flavors. Why? As a result of that’s how we prefer it! Filipino Fashion Spaghetti is like Spaghetti Bolognese, however sweeter.


So my brother cooked Filipino Fashion Spaghetti yesterday, Sunday. I took some footage, nevertheless it’s just about my very own recipe impressed by my Tita‘s. My Lola was not an enormous fan of spaghetti. She would fairly eat Chinese language noodles. Some credit additionally go to Joe, a university good friend, who advised me so as to add milk to the sauce to make it creamier. And, sure, it’s simply so a lot better!

You probably have children, I’m certain they may love this dish. It can give Jollibee a run for its cash any day. 🙂
