Add a Spicy American Kick to Your Pasta with this Bounty Fresh Buffalo Chicken Meatball Spaghetti

August 31, 2014

We love our spaghetti. Filipinos have transformed this imported Italian American staple into their own, by adding ketchup, hotdogs, then turning it slightly sweet. We usually do this to dishes that have permeated our culture, adapting them to our taste buds, creating hybrids that are incredibly Filipino. We have decided to create another spin on spaghetti, by merging it with another American classic—buffalo wings.

If you can handle your heat, then this recipe is definitely for you. Using Bounty Fresh minced chicken, we’ve made juicy, loaded meatballs with buffalo sauce. They are tender, meaty, and pack a flavorful kick with every bite. We’ve carried on this spice even to the pasta sauce, using just a bit of buffalo sauce to add a pungency to the tomatoes.

Although this may need a caution sign, it is actually still subtle enough to taste the chicken meatballs, which are the indulgent star of this new take on spaghetti.
