This is how we make spaghetti. Fairly easy to do. No fancy herbs. Deep red in color and sweeter than the Italian version. And the ingredient that sets it apart the most, we use our very own red hot dogs in it!
- 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) spaghetti noodles
- 1 cup minced onion
- 1 head of garlic finely minced
- 3/4 kilo (1.65 lbs) ground beef
- 3/4 kilo (1.65 lbs) hot dogs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 750g (26.5 ounce) Spaghetti sauce
- 1 bottle banana ketchup
- 1 box quick melt cheese
- 1/2 cup water
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook the noodles as per package direction.
Slice the hot dogs in wedges. Better do this when their still in a slightly frozen state. Split them in half then just do slanting cuts like in the picture.
Heat some oil. Saute garlic and onions. Then add in the meat. Cook till brown. Season with some salt and pepper.
Pour in the spaghetti sauce, ketchup, sugar and water.
Mix and let it simmer for about 10 minutes until it gets thick and red.
Add in the hot dogs last.
Mix and just let the hot dogs heat through. Sauce is done!
This is just a personal preference. Since I'm not mixing my sauce with the pasta I make sure to give the noodles a quick rinse after their cooked and strained them. Just to remove the excess starch.
Top the noodles with the warm sauce. Sprinkle with quick melt cheese! In this picture I added some hot dogs and marshmallow finger food to go with it. Enjoy!
