From The Kitchen: Spaghetti Bolognese with a Twist

Dish: Spaghetti bolognese with a twist
Cost of preparation: £3 - £4

No, it's not your conventional spaghetti bolognese because this spaghetti is twisted in sausages! Kids will be sure to enjoy it. And we're all kids at heart, aren't we? :)

  • 4 long sausages
  • Oregano
  • Cheddar/parmesan cheese
  • BBQ grind

  • Garlic granules

Pasta preparation:

  1. Seriously good. And i'm not just referring to Chef Gordon Ramsay's caption/tagline for his pasta sauce.
