Pinoy (slang for Filipino) Spaghetti is sweet. The usual tomato
sauce is replaced with Banana catchup, which makes the sauce
sweeter. You may see someone pouring catchup on his spaghetti,
don't be surprised. He is just trying to "sweeten" it. I do this
sometimes :). Our neighbor like it so sweet that they add
condensed milk in the sauce (no kidding!).
Besides being sweet, what makes Pinoy Spaghetti special is the
presence of hotdog, along with ground pork or corned beef.
In kiddie parties, your dish is not "special" if hotdog is missing in it.
Pinoy Spaghetti is also commonly served with the pasta and sauce
There are many variations in cooking Pinoy Spaghetti but my
favorite is my Dad's. I requested him to cook for us last
Father's Day. He agreed as long as I provide his favorite
San Mig Lite Beer.
