Pinoy Baked Macaroni. For those who have been looking for a Pinoy recipe of Baked Macaroni here it is. This Baked Macaroni post is overdue, It was in my to-cook dish for some time now. There are countless versions of baked macaroni out there, but this is my version of the Pinoy Baked Macaroni. Macaroni to most Pinoy refer to the sweet macaroni salad, sopas or to the spaghetti style macaroni pasta with ground meat either beef and/or pork with a lot of banana ketchup. In reality the Pinoy macaroni is not baked. Since most Pinoy home do not have an oven the baking part is omitted, we are not cooking that type of macaroni at this time. For today we try to make a real Baked Macaroni pasta Pinoy style.

The meat sauce that I am using is basically similar to the sauce of our Pinoy Spaghetti. It is on the sweet side but not too sweet. I have to use traditional Pinoy ingredients like fish sauce, cheddar cheese and banana ketchup, after all this is a Pinoy version of Baked Macaroni.
