One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Mom’s Home Cooked Filipino Spaghetti

Went digging through my photo archives and came across a photo I took of my mom’s home cooked Filipino style spaghetti.

 Mom’s Home Cooked Filipino Spaghetti!

Filipino spaghetti you say?!? That’s right, not your typical Italian spaghetti, but a much sweeter version of it with hotdogs. I know you must be thinking that sliced hotdogs in your spaghetti is crazy, but you got to try it before you knock it. Because just about everyone that’s given it a shot, love them.

One of a few major differences between the two is the sweetness, as mentioned above. And that’s because of the added ingredient of the Jufran Banana Sauce that can be found at any Filipino or Asian marketplace. Even though the use of Jufran is a critical component to the dish, my mom’s recipe doesn’t include it. She substitutes it with sugar instead…

Then there is the hotdog. It’s another major difference between the two. My household uses regular plain hotdogs that you find at any marketplace/grocery store. But, I’ve seen other types of sausages being used in other people’s recipes…

I know it’s not a true representation of the Filipino spaghetti. I like to call it a hybrid of sorts. It’s a compromise of the traditional Italian version and the Filipino version.

Happy eating!!!
