“A much sweeter version of spaghetti. This is how I like to make mine. Sometimes I add sliced mushrooms and bell peppers, too. Note: In response to a question about the recipe; Filipino food does tend to be on the heavier side, but in an attempt to lighten this dish, you can omit the sugar, or use a sugar substitute, but the banana ketchup is necessary to sweeten the sauce. You can also use ground turkey instead of ground beef, for less fat.”
