Spaghetti IN sausages! #pinaddicts

I saw this recipe for spaghetti in sausages on Pinterest and knew my kids would LOVE it so I gave it a go 🙂 I wasn’t wrong, they were amazed, especially Aiden who said it was super amazingly awesome. It’s not often my cooking gets such high praise!

 

KayCee was the first to ask how it was done and after explaining that you just push the dried spaghetti through the sausages before you cook them she was eager to do it herself.
I now have to order more sausages from Tesco so they can all have a go next week!
I served theirs with beans, carrots, peas and sweetcorn while Ant and I sauce made from soft cheese, onions and garlic sausage. We also had the veg mixed in. It was delicious.

The thing to remember next time is not to make so many. I did 2 tins of sausages, which I’d usually use when serving them as hot dogs in buns. I used less spaghetti than I would normally use if I were cooking it to go with a sauce but found that the portions looked huge serving them this way. The girls had about three-quarters of a sausage each and Aiden had about 1 and a half. With the beans and the veg, they ended up with quite a large dinner and we ended up with loads of spaghetti and sausages left!
They’re having them again for lunch today 🙂

    Love it. I tried to describe this to my husband after seeing it on Pinterest a while ago. He nodded, and smiled worriedly. It's so great the #pinaddicts it's like a therapy session. I'm definitely going to give these a go now.

      I love that it's so filling, easy to cook and doesn't cost a fortune having to buy loads of ingredients 🙂

    That is very interesting! I saw it a while ago and wondered how on earth it was done! x

    1. Shell Louise 6th February 2012 at 3:44 pm

      I must admit I first saw the picture with it cooked and I wondered how it was done, then I saw the before picture and was like, ohhhh, so easy!
      Such a simple idea but very effective.

      I hope they do. It's such a fun dinner. I'm on the lookout for more meal ideas for kids now 🙂

    I pinned this one too & was going to do it for this challenge too if I don't get time to do another one. I love it – so effective but so simple!

    1. Shell Louise 6th February 2012 at 3:40 pm

      I must admit, I did get a bit fed up with pushing the spaghetti through, which is why I suggested to the kids that they might like to try making it next time!! 🙂

    I had this planned for tea tomorrow. Might just have to have it tonight instead it looks scrummy and fun. Maybe all my lot will eat it without a grumble which will be a novelty.

    1. Shell Louise 6th February 2012 at 10:54 am

      You'll have to let me know if they like it 🙂

  12. Sew Scrumptious 6th February 2012 at 9:05 am
