How to Make SWEET AND SPICY SPAGHETTI

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat cooking oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté garlic and onions until they become transparent. Add in ground beef and pork. Stir meats thoroughly to break down the meat clumps. Throw in a good pinch of salt and pepper over the meats. Mix.
  2. Once the meats are all evenly browned, add in sliced hotdogs and cook further for a 15-30 seconds. Pour in tomatoe sauce, diced tomatoes, bay leaves, sriracha sauce, beer, 8 oz. of cubed cheese, and milk. Continuously stir the sauce well until all ingredients blend. Reduce the heat to simmering stage.
  3. Once the sauce is simmering, stir in agave. Cook the sauce till it becomes slightly thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from stove and set aside.
  4. Cook spaghetti pasta according to package instructions. When pasta is cooked, drain and place in a large oven proof dish. Pour spaghetti sauce over the pasta and mix them together. Top with the remaining 8 oz. of cubed cheese.
  5. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and bake spaghetti until the cheese on top is completely melted. Remove from the oven and serve with garlic bread or saltine crackers.
