Its so easy, all you do is defrost the hot dogs (if necessary) and cut into roughly inch long chunks. Take some dried spaghetti and thread about 6 strands through the hot dog chunks. Boil the pasta in a pan of salted boiling water until al dente of cooked according to package directions.

Meanwhile cook up a tomato sauce. Saute and onion in a teaspoon of olive oil until softened then add a few cloves of crushed garlic and saute for a minute before adding a tin of plum tomatoes. Crush the tomatoes with a wooden spoon and heat until thick and saucy. Season with salt, pepper, a pinch of sugar and herbs if you like. You can use tinned chopped tomatoes, but I think the flavour of even cheap tins of  plum tomatoes is far superior.

I used 4 vegan hot dogs and 150g spaghetti for two people.

      Haha….well my other half saw a picture somewhere of little pieces of hot dog thread through single strands of spaghetti, so this is a kind of spin off from that! Definitely great for the little ones! It certainly pleased the child in me 🙂
