Filipino-Style Spaghetti {Sweet Spaghetti}

A celebration isn’t a celebration until there’s a big plate of sweet spaghetti in the middle of the table.

A picnic isn’t a picnic until you bring out that tupperware of spaghetti lurking inside that bayong full of baon.

And it’s a must on every children’s party, alongside those hotdog-marshmallows skewers, fried chicken and ice cream.

I’m taking a break from my Halloween recipes to give you this month’s Kulinarya Cooking Club Challenge: the sweet and delicious Filipino-Style Spaghetti.

Filipino-Style Spaghetti is made of mostly red ingredients like tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce, banana ketchup, red hotdogs and ground pork or beef. Maybe that’s what makes it so appetizing, the color of its ingredients all plastered in the divine whiteness of the noodles.

I prefer my spaghetti noodles submerged into the sauce, almost like soup. It may sound icky to you..but to me it’s heaven.

Even if we eat out and order at say, Jollibee, when I couldn’t cook and a Pinoy-spaghetti fix is needed, I blatantly but politely ask for extra sauce.

A little trivia: my daughter doesn’t eat this type of spaghetti sauce. She eats pesto, white sauce and oil based sauces. I make her eat a spoonful whenever we have it for her to learn to appreciate this over time.

Notice the heart-shaped strawberry marshmallow, peanutbutter?

Today, in line with this KCC challenge, I made this Spaghetti complete with the hotdog-marshmallow skewer because I am celebrating something. peanubutter told me last night that he passed the supervisor exam at work. I knew he could do it but he needed a push ’cause he was a bit reluctant to apply. I gave him a shove *wink*.

There’s still an interview coming up and I’ll be praying for it fervently but right now let’s keep our mind on this small celebration.

  16. I don’t like Filipino Style Spaghetti but with a 3 year old and a husband who eats like a 3 year old I’m sure they will love this. 

    LOL Una just saw this and she said “Wow I like to eat that mommy, with dami-dami cheese and hotdog.”

  17. I *just* learned about Filipino style Spaghetti not a long ago.  I love your presentation – my daughter would love that. 🙂 

  18. Wow! I’m surprised that your little girl prefers pesto, white sauce and other oil-based pastas than the Filipino-style spaghetti! 😀 Most of my little cousins love the sweet spaghetti while me and my lil sis don’t dig it. We prefer the tangy version more and without ketchup! ^^
