Sometimes I crave for pasta dishes in lieu of regular rice. Nothing fancy, just using ingredients which are available in the fridge.  Dicing half a loaf of Spam Turkey and six small Vigan longganisa (they taste more garlicky than your ordinary longganisa in the market), onion, one red bell pepper and one medium-sized carrot was easy enough.  Sprinkle some dried herbs before baking.

The slight smoky taste of the longganisa added a touch of flavor to the dish.  We paired it with fresh buko juice – heaven!
