Christmas is really  here loves!  What better to celebrate it than have a family reunion over lunch or dinner at home with good old home-cooked meal!  It's a tradition in our family that my brothers and their families, as well as ours, get together every Christmas at my parents house.  I can say we can actually be called "Family Practicality" because we have pot luck Christmas lunch.  Each brings a meal or two to share to everyone.  This way, we don't need to spend too much by dining outside or buying food from restaurants.  Besides, nothing beats tasting each family's specialty menu!

My wacky and crazy beautiful family - Christmas Time
Speaking of which, I have said in the past that I may be a busy working mom who doesn't have time to cook anymore, but again, that doesn't mean I don't know how to cook.  In fact, when I do find time to cook, you've got to write down your name before you eat my mean meal, because you might forget your name or your spouse's name because of my sumptuous meal!  Let me share with you the staple in any of our family celebration, my Filipino-Italian Spaghetti!

Wow it's a hybrid of the usual kid-loved-Filipino Style spaghetti but with a zesty twist because it's got an Italian taste too.  Today's your lucky day love because I'll be sharing my recipe.  This spaghetti is much loved among the family, I'm a little proud to say that.  Are you ready?  First, here's how my meaty and yummy spaghetti looks like:

Filipino-Italian Spaghetti Recipe 


  • 1 kg cooked Spaghetti Noodles (any brand)
  • 1-2 tsp of MINOLA Coconut Oil
  • 1 large sized onion, peeled and diced
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic, peeled and diced
  • 3 medium sized tomatoes, cut in halves
  • 1 small can of button mushrooms
  • 3/4 kg lean ground pork/beef
  • 3-4 pieces regular hotdog, sliced diagonally
  • 1.5 kg Italian Spaghetti Sauce
  • 1 cup of broth
  • 1/2 tsp of Sugar
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. In a saucepan, heat MINOLA Coconut Oil.  Add onions, tomatoes then garlic and stir occasionally until onions caramelized in color.
  2. Add the hotdogs and cook for a minute then ground pork and cook for 5-7 minutes while stirring occasionally to break into small pieces.
  3. Add the Italian Spaghetti Sauce and bring to a boil while stirring occasionally.
  4. Once boiled, lower down fire then let it simmer for a few more minutes until the meat is fully cooked.
  5. Add mushrooms to the sauce.
  6. Add water especially when the sauce thickens.  Add sugar.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
The direction may look simple, but if you would notice, I didn't add tomato sauce nor ketchup because doing so will make the sauce sour and more of Italian.

You also noticed I stressed using MINOLA Coconut Oil instead of any ordinary oil right?  It's simple, it's because it's made of what?  Correct, coconut.  That only means it's natural.  I'm fond of using organic and natural products and using Minola Coconut Oil is being natural and safe.

Coconut is the "Tree of Life" as they say and has proven to have a lot of benefits to us such as: hair care,

skin care, cholesterol level maintenance, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, kidney failure, high blood pressure and diabetes among others.  One of the most notable advantages of coconut oil is its ability to fight viruses and bacteria. This immunity-boosting benefit and the other benefits mentioned earlier can be attributed to the presence of LAURIC in coconut oil.  Did you also know that LAURIC oil is the same substance found in breast milk?  Yes!  That's why MINOLA Coconut Oil is close to our hearts at home because of these countless benefits.

So the next time you deep fry your chicken or cook other countless delicious dishes for your family especially this coming Christmas, choose the cooking oil that you know is safe and even help boost immunity!
