Marinara Sauce (Filipino Style)

- Cook macaroni pasta according to package instructions. Drain from water, keep it warm and set aside.
- In a pan, heat oil to saute garlic and onion until fragrant. Toss in the ground beef and cook it until brown. Add in the sliced hotdogs and let it cook.
- Season with garlic salt, pepper, 2 tablespoon soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce. Toss it well until the beef becomes crumbled.
- Pour in one jar of Italian Style Marinara sauce, and fresh chopped tomatoes. Bring it to a boil and just let it simmer to soften the tomatoes.
- Then add in the banana ketchup, sugar and mix it well.
- This time it’s time for you to adjust the final taste. I added 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce. I seasoned it with dried basil leaves and garlic salt. (The ground pepper plays a vital role in the final taste) so adjust the taste as needed.

- Pair it with toasted bread in melted butter, garlic salt.
