There are instant pasta sauce that are easy to prepare, if wanted. They are usually available in supermarkets either in canned or in bottled containers.

Most children will like spaghetti if the sauce is tasty and sweet. Am I right my dear mga pamangkin (nephews/nieces) and apo (grandchildren)?

This sauce is mixed with vegetables that add sweetness to the usual ingredients, which will please children's taste buds. It also goes further!

  • 400 grams of mussel meat
  • 1 medium-sized onions, finely chopped
  • 1 medium-sized bell pepper (red/yellow), finely chopped 
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crashed and choppped
  • a pinch of mixed herbs and 1 teaspoonful of basil
  • 1 large-sized carrot (Organic is the best), grated
  • 1 canned of chopped tomato
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. of mustard sauce
  • a good squeezed of Tomato Purée or Paste
  • sliced raw spring onions/parsley 

 Cooking Procedure:
  1. Fry the mussel meat on a moderate flame for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Stirring occasionally.
  2. When the meat is cooked, place it into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Fry the onion on a moderate flame for 5 minutes or until it is translucent in colour. Place it on top of the meat. Just set aside the 3 of them.
  4. Fry the garlic on a moderate flame for a few moments. Add the fried onion, cooked meat, bell pepper and sprinkle some mixed herbs and basil. Stir and mix all well.
  5. Add the grated carrot and the canned chopped tomato. Stir and cover for 5 minutes.
  6. On a low flame, add the beef stock cube, salt and pepper in the mixture. Leave it for another 3 minutes.
  7. Stir everything well in the pan before adding the mustard sauce. Stir again and mix all of the ingredients well. Cover for 5 minute (on a low flame).
  8. Add the tomato purée and basil. Mix all well again.
  9. Cover and simmer it for a minimum of 8-10 minutes on a low flame, to bring out the flavours.
