On my gradma's birthday I was the one assigned to cook the spaghetti. I am not an expert in cooking but my mom want to train me for future references. :) The spaghetti I cook was just the usually spaghetti recipe. :) For the sauce I used an Italian style spaghetti sauce mixed it with cooked ground beef, hotdogs, cheese and a little cream to make it creamy. Then I seasoned it to taste good. :) On cooking the pasta I just boil it in a water mixed with pepper and oil. And when the pasta was done I mixed it with the sauce and add a little cheese on top. :)

Your spaghetti looks delicious ! .. And you know, one thing I learned from the Italians is not to put oil in the water when you boil the noodles because it prevents the sauce being absorbed .. I used to put oil too but now, I just drain it and put a bit of sauce straight away to prevent them from sticking to one another..

Really? I once tried not putting oil in the water once because I forgot and when I drain the pasta and left it for a while to finish cooking the sauce. When I place the pasta on the sauce the pasta stick with one another. :( Maybe it is because of the pasta I used or maybe it is because it took me a while to finish cooking the sauce. :) I'll try your style next time. :)

I love that Italian style spaghetti sauce, the one in the can that we can buy in our country but my family loves the Filipino style so majority always wins

I used Del Monte Italian Style Spaghetti sauce. We don't usually use the Filipino style because we find it sweet and my family doesn't want the spaghetti sweet. but at least they agree on adding cream. :)

I also love pasta, I once tried cooking fettuccine pasta with alfredo sauce and I really liked the result. :) Try cooking it, at least you can make a pasta that really match your taste. :)

@MGjhaud hahaha. desperate and alone? Don't cook when your desperate, the food won't taste good. I tried cooking when I was desperate and the result wasn't good. :) For me the outcome of our cooking really depends on our mood. :) If your desperate eat Ice cream. hahaha :)

oh, I forgot I also place salt. So it is oil, salt and pepper. :) It depends, if we will cook 1 and a half kilo of pasta I usually add around 400 ml of cream :)
