Cooking Suggestions

Buying a meaty spaghetti sauce pack and pouring it directly on cooked spaghetti noodles doesn't give you the same satisfying goodness. I've tried it twice due to laziness and I tell you it doesn't work. Well, my kids liked it but I didn't enjoy it as much as they say they did.

Do not put oil in the water when boiling the spaghetti noodles. If you do that, oil will coat the spaghetti noodles causing it to not absorb well the spaghetti sauce that your guests will be pouring on it. While you are cooking the spaghetti, simply stir occassionally to prevent the spaghetti strands from sticking.

The best time you can get your spaghetti noodles to taste more appetizing is when you are boiling it. So instead of pouring oil, the rule of thumb is, dissolve just enough salt to make the water taste like the sea before putting the spaghetti. This will increase the overall yumminess of your spaghetti recipe that your family will surely love. You can thank me later.

I hope you and your family enjoy your Filipino Style Spaghetti recipe!
