Spaghetti alla Mudra
I believe that there's no better comfort food than spaghetti.
Spaghetti is originally an Italian dish, but Filipinos modified the sour, savory pasta sauce into something that's actually more sweet, meaty and cheesy. This version of spaghetti is popular in Filipino birthday parties and holiday gatherings.
