Today I decided to try the new culinary craze hitting Facebook. It’s a terribly classy dinner of frankfurter and spaghetti, the twist is that uncooked spaghetti is shoved through the frankfurters by children before being cooked. It’s not the kind of meal I would dream of cooking if I didn’t live in a house with two little boys, but if you can stomach frankfurters it’s a quick easy treat meal.
I pack of frankfurters (I used tescos but drew the line at the ones in brine) sliced into 4 pieces
As much spaghetti as a hungry man deems suitable for your family
1/2 carton of passata
1 small chorizo sausage halved long ways and sliced
After husband grossly overestimates the volume of spaghetti needed snap it in half and hand over to children with sliced frankfurters (gag).
Once spaghetti has been shoved through the frankfurter slices throw it into a saucepan of boiling water and let the spaghetti cook.
Meanwhile do the nice bit of the meal – spray a frying pan with spray light and cook chorizo and mushrooms (yum).
Tip passata into the frying pan with herbs, a splash of boiling water and a crumbled oxo cube, leave to simmer down.
Drain horrifying frankfurter and spaghetti mix, top with sauce and allow children to apply liberally to their faces, hands and t-shirts.
