Spaghetti Bolognese Dominican Heat Style

Hello friends and fellow foodies!

One of the most simple, delicious and popular Dominican recipes is Spaghetti “A la Criolla” (Dominican Style spaghettis)

Almost all popular eateries and street food trucks and stands have spaghetti made this way for breakfast (yup, you heard right!)

Some time ago I had shared my “Sous Chef’s” delicious juicy meatballs. A few days ago I had some leftover meatballs and stewed beans and I decided to do spaghetti “a la Criolla” with a twist.

Regular ingredients for Spaghetti “a la criolla”.

  • 1 lb. spaghetti.

  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. black pepper.
  • 1 large red onion.
  • 1 tbsp. garlic paste (natural home-made)
  • 2 sweet green peppers (I use Cubanela)
  • 1 bouillon cube.
  • 2 cups water.
  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise.
  • Salt to taste.
  • Parmesan cheese.

My personal touch.


Boil your spaghetti and leave them al dente. (spaghetti a la criolla is usually a bit overdone which is why you should leave them al dente so they’ll finish correctly when you cook them with the sauce and don’t become a mushy mash)

In a pot stir fry the onion, peppers, garlic paste and bouillon. Add the water, oregano, pepper and tomato paste. Allow to boil until it gets creamy, add the stewed beans and meatballs. Check the salt.

Add the spaghetti and allow to mix well. Serve and add the cheese slices on top and allow to melt.

Goes great with tostones.
