They may look like creatures from out of space but Spaghetti Sausage Bites are one of the most requested meals in our house.

Spaghetti sausage bites are actually really easy to make. Only two ingredients – yep, you’ve guessed it – sausages and spaghetti and you have a wholesome meal all in one – packed with protein and some pasta carbs, You can even use wholemeal spaghetti if you want to increase the nutrient value of this meal.

I recommend finding a good quality hot dog sausage. I usually buy frankfurters that have no artificial additives and are low in salt. I try and stay well clear of the ones with flouro-pink skin. They just look bad quality, don’t they!

Thin Spaghetti

I usually use thin spaghetti for my spaghetti sausage bites as the regular spaghetti does take longer to cook and may ruin your sausages. But feel free to experiment with different kids of spaghetti and see what works best for you.

Angel hair spaghetti is even thinner but you may find it breaks too easily and it’s just not worth the frustration.

It takes a bit of practice to thread the spaghetti through the sausages but it’s actually really easy once you get the hang of it.

You can either put a few strands together and thread them through the sausage all at once. Or you can thread through one spaghetti strand at a time at different angles.

Then once you’ve got your spaghetti sausage bites ready to go, you just need to boil them in some salted water for a few minutes and you have tasty edible octopus aliens – aka spaghetti sausage bites – which the kids will love and yum up in minutes.

You can even use black spaghetti and create monster spaghetti sausage bites for Halloween for some spooky treats.

Give these spaghetti sausage bites a go and let us know what you and the kids think.


Ingredients (serves 3)

  • 6 hot dog sausages, cut into 6 even bite sizes pieces
  • About 50 strands of THIN spaghetti

Method

  1. Cut each sausage into 6 even bite-sized pieces.
  2. Carefully thread between 5 to 7 strands of raw spaghetti through each piece of sausage.
  3. Boil a pot of salted water and add the spaghetti sausages to the pot.
  4. Cook until pasta is al dente (about 6 minutes).
  5. Drain water and serve.

To add some extra flavour, you could even add some butter and grated cheese to your spaghetti sausage bites when cooked. But my kids prefer them plain.
