Filipino Spaghetti

It is an easy to cook dinner. I can assure this as I remember being forced to cook this dish without knowledge and guidance from my mother directly, other than her messaging the ingredients and instructions through the phone. Nonetheless, it was successful and still tasted amazing. You can keep leftovers in a tight container and placing it in the fridge for the next day.
