Spaghetti Filipino style is very different, in a sense that its sweet, yeah.. sweet and peppery.. I can’t describe exactly the taste. Lets say, it’s a chaos combination of sweet, spicy, creamy with the taste of tomato sauce and ketchup… yeah ketchup. I used to cook spaghetti ( a lot..) when my kids are younger but they moved on and they got tired of it. When we started to live here, I experimented a lot in the kitchen. Then I continued to mix and match. In the end, a new combination will come out. Like I said, one should not be afraid to try to cook with a little of this and that.. the usual way that you knew, incorporate it with new ones and oh how I love it… I think that I will grow old and I will die…baking, cooking and experimenting… lol!
Who wont like Spaghetti? I love it… but I’m choosy and you know the kind of feeling that you think first before you eat cause somehow you doubt if it’s cooked the way you like it. Yes, I’m that kind of person. I don’t know..its just me.. I’m being me and I believe there are others like me, I am not alone…cheers to that! My quest for my perfect spaghetti sauce took me a lot of time and I cooked with different combinations but I always ended up not satisfied. Several months ago, I saw this spaghetti sauce recipe and I tried it. Of course I applied my fusion technique, the Filipino way and the new one. Oh I must have been so lucky cause I discovered the real spaghetti sauce for me and my family.Yes!.. now I can rest with my quest…
750 to 900 grams ground meat, combination of beef and pork
6 to 10 pcs purefoods jumbo hotdogs, sliced the way you like it ( optional )
5 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tbsp grated garlic
1 cup white onion chopped
1 cup beef broth
2 cans crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 jar Marinara sauce, big
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper flakes
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp ground pepper
In a saucepan, heat 3 tbsp olive oil and add the meat.Cook until the raw color is gone.
Remove from the saucepan. Now add more oil, saute the garlic and onion.
Once the aroma comes out, add 2 tbsp of tomato paste, saute until well incorporated.
Next add the wine, wait until the bubbles are all gone, cook for like 3 minutes.
Then add the crushed tomatoes,marinara sauce and the meat.
Mix well and add the salt, sugar, oregano, thyme, bay leaves, pepper flakes, ground pepper, milk and parmesan. Then simmer it for 1 hour. Add 1 cup of beef broth only when you think its necessary.
I can’t exactly tell you how much meat sauce you have to put on top…just put more the way you like it..
Be more gracious, make use of your cheese…you know its good, its addictive and very yummy…
The closer look.. coming from the microwave..I added more cheese and I am ready to finish the whole mountain of spaghetti..chunky,meaty and yummy creamy..cheesy…. Life is beautiful just way it is.. Come. Lets eat. Lets giggle. Lets be merry. Have a good year to all…
