"The difference between Italian spaghetti and Filipino spaghetti is the addition of banana ketchup, which makes this a rather sweet dish. Oh, and I almost forgot the hot dogs!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

My first husband was Filipino, and this was a staple in his family. I ended up loving MOST Filipino food, but this wasn't one of my favorites. It's all right, not super great. For authenticity, buy the pink hot dogs they sell at the Asian market (same place you have to go to find banana ketchup).
This recipe needed a little improvement. For authenticity purposes you must get the red asian style hot dogs from an international market. If unavailable, use Nathans all beef hot dogs or Hebrew national all beef hot dogs. Regular American hot dogs will ruin the flavor of this dish as they are much too salty. (The all beef american hot dogs listed above are a great substitution-not only are they much less salty but they have the red color reminicent of the asian hot dogs.)Also,don't use spaghetti sauce. Use two bottles of Jufran Banana ketchup and 8-10 ounces tomato sauce. Omit the sugar. Only add the water if sauce needs thinning out.
This sounded so odd, I thought I would give this a chance...should have stuck with my gut instincts. Found banana ketsup at the ethnic store and followed the directions, but this was so awful!
modified a few things to taste, but awesome base recipe! finally no longer need to go to jollibee to get my fix of sweet home cooked spaghetti! :)
Good but not great. You should try jschrier8's filipino spaghetti! it's the best I've tasted and reminds me of Jolibee. Amazing! Go check it out!
I'm a Filipino woman and I grew up in the Philippines. This recipe was never made by my family so my curiosity got to me one time and went to Jolibee, a Filipino fast food restaurant. I have to give this a thumb down.
You know, I think it's really just a cultural thing as far as people not liking it. I grew up eating this at Filipino parties and I make it this way myself. The only thing I change is omitting the 1/2 cup of water and adding a can of tomato paste.
First, use tomato sauce, not spaghetti sauce. Replace the 26oz jar of spaghetti sauce with three 8oz cans of tomato sauce, one 6oz can of paste, and two 6oz cans of water (in paste can to clean excess from edges before pouring into saucepan).
As others have suggested, use authentic Filipino hotdogs when possible. If not, any decent brand of hot dog will suffice--simply boil them in water for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes (allow ends to blister), which will remove some of the salt content. Then, omit added salt from the recipe.
Next, use raw sugar or, if unavailable, brown sugar. If author means a single clove of garlic, this is not enough; if she means an entire bulb, this is too much. 3 to 4 cloves should suffice Also, "an onion" is too vague. For this recipe, 1/2 cup chopped or minced onions works well.
When simmering sauce uncovered (which should be for 90 minutes to cook down and infuse flavors), leave hot dogs out until the last 30 minutes.
Finally, 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese is NOT enough. One ounce per ounce of uncooked pasta is more appropriate.
