    Spaguettis "a la criolla" is a very common and traditional way to have spaguettis in Dominican Republic. A "must" in street food vendors...


    • 1 lb spaguettis
    • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 1 Teaspoon oregano
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 big red onion
    • 1 tablespoon garlic paste
    • 2 sweet small peppers
    • 1 cubanela pepper
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth
    • 2 tablespoons mayonaise
    • Salt to taste
    • Parmesan cheese


    1. Boil your spaguettis until "al dente". Separate.
    2. In a pan, heat some oil (2-3 tablespoons should suffice) and add the onion, the peppers and the garlic paste. Let it fry for 2 minutes, add 2 cups of water, the chicken broth, oregano, pepper and tomato paste. Let it boil until creamy. Correct the salt.
    3. Add the spaguettis and mix. If they're still pale add more tomato paste, while making sure it is mixing well. When they're well mixed add the mayonaise and mix.
    4. Serve and add parmesan cheese on top.
    5. Goes well with baguette or plantain tostones.
