This introduction is a repost from my previous blog welovejenni:

Sweet or Filipino-style spaghetti is my all-time favorite comfort food. I remember eating it three times a day for a whole month during one summer in high school! I would have continued eating it but my nanny was concerned that I might not get enough nutrients in my diet. Quick solution: Add veggies to the sauce!

I have been cooking this recipe since high school and my daughter Aryanna loves it too! In a recent conversation…

Me: “I think I’ll share my sweet-style spaghetti recipe on my blog as a ‘Meal Makeover’.”
Aryanna: “How are you going to makeover sweet spaghetti?”
Mom: “Well, you know how I add carrots to the sauce, right?”
Aryanna: “Yeah…”
Me: “You know that the typical sweet style spaghetti sauce doesn’t have carrots in it, right?”
Aryanna: *shocked* “It doesn’t?!!!”

I don’t know how many times my daughter’s friends have complemented me on how good our sauce is and I never tell them that there are carrots, fresh tomatoes, and bell peppers in the sauce. I finely chop the veggies and they almost look like ground beef. They can hardly tell especially when they’re hungry. So moms, don’t tell!

This time around, instead of ground lean beef, I’m using Argentina Corned Beef and Argentina Vienna Sausage. They are alternatives if you don’t have ground meat at home.

Argentina Corned Beef Sweet Spaghetti

Ingredients:

3-4 cans of Argentina Corned Beef
1-2 cans of Argentina Vienna Sausage

1 500g pack of wholemeal spaghetti

1 pack of Sweet Style spaghetti sauce

1 carrot, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup water

2tbsp olive oil

Easy peasy:

Step 1: Fry the Argentina Corned Beef and Vienna Sausage with a bit of olive oil

Step 2: Once the meats are cooked, add the chopped veggies

Step 3: Pour in the spaghetti sauce and 1/4 cup of water (to thin out the thick spaghetti sauce)

Step 4: Mix the ingredients and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally

Plating:

Here’s a fun way to serve spaghetti: using a fork, twril the noodles and lower it on the serving plate. Make several portions of twirled pasta for easy serving.

Top each portion of twirled noodles with the spaghetti sauce

Pour the rest of the sauce on the side of the serving dish.

Et viola!

I can eat this everyday!

Dig in! This is sooooooooo goooooooood!

Jubos!

One more serving?
