"The difference between Italian spaghetti and Filipino spaghetti is the addition of banana ketchup, which makes this a rather sweet dish. Oh, and I almost forgot the hot dogs!"

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beef and pork; season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the meat has browned. Pour in the spaghetti sauce, banana ketchup, sugar, and water. Simmer until the sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in hot dog slices and continue to cook until hot dogs are heated through. Serve over spaghetti with Cheddar cheese sprinkled on top.

modified a few things to taste, but awesome base recipe! finally no longer need to go to jollibee to get my fix of sweet home cooked spaghetti! :)

Good but not great. You should try jschrier8's filipino spaghetti! it's the best I've tasted and reminds me of Jolibee. Amazing! Go check it out!

You know, I think it's really just a cultural thing as far as people not liking it. I grew up eating this at Filipino parties and I make it this way myself. The only thing I change is omitting...

My husband is Filipino and really likes this spaghetti. Made a few changes to make it a bit more authentic, like a previous reviewer said. I used tomato sauce instead of spaghetti sauce (the s...
