Filipino Spaghetti

Filipino style spaghetti is a sweet spaghetti with hotdogs that’s the closest description of it and popularised by the food chain Jollibee. It became so popular that it’s one of the favourite food at parties and occasions even during Christmas dinner! This is my version of it, I know it may seem strange but don’t knock it until it you try it. You might enjoy it!
Ok ok…Italians and Europians are rolling their eyes. I know this is not very Italian but I can assure you it tastes good. I remember making a proper spaghetti, I even made my own sauce, the pasta was cooked just right then topped with a good handful of cheese. I let my little nephew try it, warning him that this is how Italians make it. He spat it out saying why isn’t it sweet?! Oh dear! I had to educate him the poor boy.
