Food for a Fiver: Hot Dog Spaghetti

[Shelby Loasby | News Sub Editor]

(£2.50 or £4.84 = 63p or £1.21 per serving)

Serves 4


500g Pasta – 50p

12 jumbo hot dogs (2 tins) – £2.00

Pinch of salt

Optional toppings and sides

500g Tomato and Garlic Pasta Sauce – 84p

Grated Hard Cheese – £1.18

Garlic Baguette – 32p


  1.       Follow the instructions on the packaging to cook the garlic baguette.

  2.       Cut the hot dogs into small, even chucks, and then poke 4-5 pieces of uncooked spaghetti through each piece of hot dog.

  3.       Boil a saucepan of water with a pinch of salt, and transfer the hot dog spaghetti pieces into the pan.

  4.       After about 10 minutes, remove a strand of spaghetti from the pan to check if it has cooked. (Top tip: Throw the strand against a tiled wall. If the spaghetti sticks, it is ready)

  5.       Once you are happy that the spaghetti is cooked, drain, and then return to the pan

  6.       If you chose to include the Pasta sauce, simply add to the spaghetti and stir in until it is completely covered.

  7.       The Hot Dog Spaghetti is ready to be enjoyed! (Don’t forget the grated cheese and garlic bread)
