Filipino Spaghetti

Now you must be wondering what is Filipino spaghetti.  It is like normal spaghetti except that it is sweeter and in my family, we put hot dogs instead of meatballs.  My taste buds is a little more sophisticated now but I rush to the table when this is serve.  It just reminds me of my childhood.  There are multiple variations.  My cousin includes 7-up in her recipes :D. 

Filipino Spaghetti
1 Box of Spaghetti
1 Package of Hot Dogs
1 Jar of Marinara Sauce
1 Cup of Ketchup (and yes I said Ketchup) - banana ketchup works too
1 Cup of Sugar
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Directions
  1. Cook both the spaghetti and hot dogs.  I would put the hot dogs at the bottom of the pot and than the spaghetti (this is my short cut in making this).
  2. Start cooking the sauce by combining the rest of the ingredients in a medium sauce pan.  You may want to decrease or increase the amount of sugar to your taste.
  3. Drain the spaghetti and hot dogs. 
  4. Slice the hot dogs into bit size pieces.
  5. All the components until it is fully incorporated. 
  6. Top with some Parmesan cheese :D
  7. Serve
This is a great kids meal even with all the sugar.  You could also add some veggies and it will be a great way to get them to eat some.

  14. This looks yum-- like something from my childhood, via my parents' Hawaiian background. A lot of Filipinos also immigrated to Hawaii -- maybe it is popular there too? My son would love this. :)

  15. Love your recipe! I like to pan fry my hotdogs when I make this. I've used 7-up before but I've also used Coke. Nowadays I add balsamic vinegar when I don't have coke or 7-up but I add it the last 10 minutes of simmer time.
