I have tried a few quick spaghetti in the past – from South Korea, Japan and Indonesia, but never from the Philippines! I had a look to see if there’s a particular way in which spaghetti is enjoyed in the Philippines and as it turns out, I found some recipes that included hot dogs. Interesting! Well, let’s have a look at this unique instant variety = Lucky Me! Curly spaghetti!
Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, cook noodles in briskly boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain. Combine with sauce and enjoy!
The noodle block. The noodles look much wider than most.
The sauce sachet.
The sauce has a sweet tomato scent.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added minced beef, zucchini, bell pepper, mushroom, basil paste, Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt and sauteed it all together and mixed it in and topped with herbed parmesan cheese. The noodles are definitely large gauge – larger than ramyun even. They also have an excellent chewiness to them. The flavor is a sweet tomato sauce which coats everything quite well. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4807770272516.
