Filipino Spaghetti is the Pinoy version of Spaghetti with meat sauce. This version has a sweet tomato based sauce with lots of meat ingredients such as ground pork, luncheon meat, and hotdogs. It is often served during kid’s birthday parties along with some yummy fried chicken and cake.
This Filipino spaghetti version makes use of store-bought Filipino Style spaghetti sauce (this is also sometimes labeled as Filipino Style Tomato Sauce), instead of making one from scratch. I think that the sauce that I used was good because it has the flavors that I was expecting. It also helped me saved a little time because I do not need to make my Filipino Spaghetti Sauce from ground-up. We also have another version which I called Pinoy Spaghetti.
Do you like Filipino Style Spaghetti? I love it for sure, and I think that will even be better if eaten with toast and butter. This is what I always order every time I go to Jollibee. I enjoy eating my Jollibee Spaghetti with Chicken joy.
