My Filipino-Style Spaghetti


I was craving for Jollibee spaghetti. Jollibee is a popular burger fastfood chain in Philippines. Unfortunately, we don't have Jollibee here in town. I checked my pantry and just found a jar of Italian sauce which I really don't like. It's sour for me and I want the sweet-style sauce. I remember how my mom cooks spaghetti. She will mix ketchup, spaghetti sauce and condensed milk to the meat. So I grabbed a bottle of ketchup and a can of condensed milk. Not only that, I also prepared sliced italian sausage as a substitute for filipino hotdogs. The sausage here is not that bad. I like it too. I cooked the ground beef(about a lb) with minced garlic, onion, and bell pepper. I then added the italian sauce (emptied the jar). Let it boil and added a bit of ketchup and condensed milk. I like it sweet so I used half of the can. The sausage was then added and I let it simmer for a bit. The pasta was cooked according to package direction. After that, the pasta was topped with my own filipino-style spaghetti and parmesan cheese. It wasn't bad at all. Taste like jollibee!
