My Unique Spaghetti Recipe

This is a bougie version of the spaghetti boarding house students make in the dorms. This is only natural as I was one myself. However, this version is healthier and more delicious.


  • Spaghetti
  • Tomatoes
  • Scotch bonnet peppers
  • Onions
  • Ginger and garlic
  • Green bell peppers
  • Red bell peppers
  • Fresh fish (tilapia)
  • Carrots
  • Egg
  • Coconut oil from Ajimi
  • Beef (if you must)


Blend the tomatoes, scotch bonnet peppers, onions, ginger and garlic together. Add pieces of the fish and steam for the broth to thicken, then add coconut oil (from Ajimi), salt to taste and continue to stir fry for 10 minutes. Boil the spaghetti and drain water.

Add the boiled spaghetti to the tomato and fish stew and stir on low heat until everything mixes well. Add boiled egg and beef. Let 👏🏽 me 👏🏽 tell 👏🏽 you 👏🏽, this is soul food. The blend of spaghetti, fish and tomato stew on your taste buds is something to live for. I took it the extra mile by making a cucumber and mango fruit bowl.
