Pinoy Spaghetti

Pinoy Spaghetti
Pinoy Spaghetti, have you wondered why our spaghetti is totally different with the Italian spaghetti or any other spaghetti. It is sweet and with a tinge of spiciness. It has something to do with our love of sweet foods, especially with food cooked in tomato sauce.

  1. When I cook this type of spaghetti (where we mix the pasta and sauce), I try to make the sauce a little more watery than usual because after some time that the pasta is sitting in the sauce, it will absorb some of the moisture, leaving it at perfect consistency in a few hours. Once, i tried mixing a rich sauce on some pasta; it was cooked at lunch time and by dinner time before serving it, it was so dry.

  2. Hi joceph, I agree the best, do not mix in the sauce until ready to serve. Thanks for the helpful tip and advice…

  3. I love spaghetti. Yours looks very delicious. Thanks for sharing. -Angela

  6. Hi Rita,
    Yes you can also use tomato paste instead of tomato sauce, just remember that tomato paste is more concentrated.
