Filipino Sweet Spaghetti
Filipino spaghetti is a Filipino adaptation of the Italian spaghetti with Bolognese sauce. It has a distinctively sweet sauce, usually made from tomato sauce sweetened with brown sugar or banana ketchup. It is typically topped with sliced hotdogs or smoked longganisa sausages, giniling, and grated cheese.
This dish is a must have at Filipino parties, it’s a choice between Pancit (noodles) or Filipino style-Spaghetti or both! I would have both to be honest..haha!! Most tourists probably tried the famous Jollibee Spaghetti when they visited the Philippines. I’m sure their Filipino friends have recommended this fast food chain to them as a point of reference for a visit. Personally, I love Jollibee! Everytime we visit the Philippines, as soon as we land and take our luggage and our first point of business is to go to the nearest Jollibee restaurant. Somehow our jetlag goes away when we eat Jollibee and we wake up feeling refreshed.
Like other Filipino dishes, there are many household variations to Filipino spaghetti. This version is something I put together from scratch and in all honesty I cook my bolognese this way too but without the sugar, ketchup and sausages. Ta da! 2 in 1 dish haha!!
