AMW Cooks: Purefoods TJ Slow-Cooked Spaghetti


“How do you make time for everything, Nikki?”

One question I get to asked by so many of my dear #AMWFriends on my social media pages.  They probably see me juggle through several jobs - working PR consultancy on the side, helping my son with his assignments, Blogs, Vlogs and manage the household!  And one thing they probably wonder is how I can still cook meals for my family every single day.

Well, it isn’t easy I tell you!  There were days I just want to give up and grab my phone and order for take away!  But I chose not, aside from that option being more expensive, I also want to make sure I know the exact ingredients my family consume especially with a 7-year old growing boy at home!  My only option is to manage my time wisely and create dishes that are easy-to-do while constantly in search for easy-to-make “backup” meals on days I really cannot split my time!

One dish I have been wanting to do so many times since the Lockdown but can’t seem to find time is Spaghetti.  Spaghetti seems like a very simple and easy-to-do meal, but fellow mommies would agree with me when I say: “It is such a hassle recipe to do!”  

Think about chopping the ingredients, think about mixing the sauce to the perfect blend that would work for both kids and adults alike.  Think about checking the noodles boiling on the side making sure it doesn’t get soggy while you try to add spices on your boiling spaghetti sauce.  I mean seriously, I am already perspiring so much at this point!  

So thankfully, I found a solution!  My new found friend called Purefoods TJ Slow-Cooked Spaghetti Sauce.  This cuts Spaghetti-making time in half and it does not taste like it was made in a rush!

Here’s how I prepare my #TenderJuicyfied Purefoods TJ Slow-Cooked Spaghetti!

Step 1: Boil pasta.  Time it, the best pasta texture would be boiled 15 minutes then set aside.

Tip: For spaghetti not to stick to each other, add a tbsp oil in water. 

Step 2: Bring out Purefoods Slow-Cooked Spaghetti Sauce pack from the freezer.  Thaw for 10-15 minutes and slow-cook on pot with lowest heat setting.

Step 3: Simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Check out meat and Tender Juicy hotdogs included in the sauce pack! 

Step 4: Pour over cooked pasta.  Serve and enjoy!

This discovery is one of the best!  I can tutor my son or play with him, set an alarm for 10 minutes and we’re ready to eat!  No time wasted!  And the best part?  The taste is perfect, no need to keep on tasting it to get the right “timpla”.  It is a perfect blend of sweetness with all the yummy ingredients inside!
