Filipino Sweet Spaghetti
"Filipino Sweet Spaghetti is a thing. It is sweet, saucy and even meatier than regular Italian spaghetti. Filipino spaghetti is an adaptation of Italian spaghetti with Bolognese sauce. It is typically served as a snack and is a great party pleaser for kids and kids at heart. There are many variations of Filipino spaghetti. Some may add hotdogs and even chorizo for a more distinctive flavor profile. Adding a heaping teaspoon of chili flakes will create a balance of sweet and spicy flavors that is excellent for a wine-drinking session."
