Dominican Spaghetti

This is my mom’s famous Dominican Spaghetti recipe. It derives from Spain which has a strong influence in Dominican cooking. It’s a little crazy to think that this is a staple when Dominicans go to the beach, yep! just a little crazy! lol Usually served with bread. I love it over white rice too. It’s a simple recipe that will keep you coming back for seconds. Disfruten!
