Corned Tuna and Sausage Spaghetti

Ok. Let me just do this quickly before I forget and while I have time before I have to pick up Kissy at the bus stop.

I had no idea what to have for lunch today. I didn't want to have afritada again. The afritada is good, by the way, and I've been having it for lunch and dinner for about 3 days now. So, I thought I wanted something different this time and then decided to start on the spaghetti I had promised Kissy for merienda.

I was supposed to use corned beef instead of ground pork for the spaghetti sauce. But I had corned beef for breakfast this morning (in a sandwich) and I was thinking I could do something different. I quickly scanned the pantry and there were cans of corned tuna just sitting there. I had bought them weeks ago to try; heard corned tuna was healthier than corned beef and just as good. So, I decided it was time to find.

I had a corned beef sandwich with a cup of hot choco for breakfast.
In the process of making the sauce, I noticed it didn't look appetizing enough (from a kid's point of view)  and realized it lacked the usual hotdogs that kids love so much. But I was totally out of those super good all-beef hotdogs 'cause I used them all up for the afritada. Hmmm....another quick investigation of the pantry...and voila! Saw my cans of vienna sausages! There's my answer :-)

So, it became a corned tuna and sausage spaghetti which was totally delish! Here's how I put them all together:

1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 small onion, chopped
1 small carrot, finely chopped
1 can (155 grams / 5.5 oz) corned tuna
1 can (135 grams) Vienna sausages
500 grams sweet Filipino style spaghetti sauce
salt and pepper to taste
3 teaspoons cooking oil
500 grams spaghetti noodles
Grated cheese

1.  Saute garlic, onion, carrots, corned tuna and sausages.
2. Add in the sweet style spaghetti sauce and simmer for 5 mins.
3. Add a dash of salt and pepper to taste.
4. Pour over cooked spaghetti noodles.
5. Top with grated cheese. Enjoy!!!

Finished product.
