Spicy & Sweet Spaghetti
This Spaghetti is not the normal you’re probably use to eating. This spaghetti is both spicy and sweet at the same time! You know that Sour Patch commercial?! “First they’re sour, and then they’re sweet!” Same concept, different taste… First, it’s SPICY, and then it’s SWEET! You literally can taste all the flavors one after the other.
This recipe comes from my brother -n- love, Jeremy! Every time he and my sister, Alex come to visit us, his dish is definitely on the menu. It’s so GOOD! It starts off spicy, with the sweetness coming in at the end (BAM!). I literally can eat at least three bowls in one setting (Not a good thing). My brother-n-law is so well-rounded, not only can he cook but he is also super smart, great husband and father, and he can rap! So not only did he inspire this recipe, he inspired me to make a rap song about it 🤣.
Here is a little song I made for you all about this Spaghetti:
🎶This Spaghetti is spicy and sweet; it’s so awesome it can’t be beat! So try this recipe and tell me what you think, make sure you eat it with a nice refreshing drink 🎶
🎶 Spicy & Sweet…. Spicy & Sweet (it can’t be beat!), Spicy & Sweet… Spicy & Sweet (It can’t be beat!)YEAH!🎶 (make sure you cross your arms at the end with a cool look on your face) lol
Okay, I may not be that good with making a song, but this Spaghetti is a different story. Let get to the cooking, as I add my own little touch to it!
