Spaghetti Threaded Sausage (with Zucchini, Haloumi & Pumpkin Kebabs)

spaghetti threaded sausage recipe

I found the spaghetti threaded sausage idea on Pinterest and it intrigued  me.  It looked like a fun idea, and I knew the kids would enjoy it.

Tried it; loved it.  It was especially fun to prepare and a hit with both the kids and the husband; perfect for a family night, where everyone can get involved.

Ingredients

Good quality deli sausage like continental franks, kransky or  knackwurst (1 – 2 per person)

Spaghetti (regular not thin)

Tomato pasta sauce (optional)

Method

1. Boil water in a very large saucepan.

2. Cut sausage into approximately one inch thick pieces.

3. Carefully thread a spaghetti strand into a piece of sausage.  The trick, to make sure they don’t break while you push them in, is to feed the spaghetti through, a little bit at a time, with you hand close to the sausage. It’s not hard; even my 5 year old got the hang of it quickly. The kids enjoyed helping with this and I loved watching them all work around the kitchen table with me.

4.  Feed about 4 -6 spaghetti strands through each sausage piece.

5. Once all the sausage is complete, carefully place into the boiling water. Don’t worry if the spaghetti pokes up, just carefully stir until it relaxes into the water.

6. Boil for 10 minutes, and then strain.  Rinse with warm water while still in the strainer (to get rid of any excess oil from the sausages).

7. Serve with tomato pasta sauce at the side and vegetables.
