Spagheti a sausses

Vermicelli with Sausage, Cherry Tomatoes and Spinach

This dish is a traditional Haitian breakfast, spicy and savory spaghetti. Spaghetti for breakfast? YES!!! Traditionally it's served with salted cod fish or sausage hot dogs. Had a craving for some the other day and decided to make some. Today, I used spicy sausage and added spinach and cherry tomatoes just for an extra kick and color.


1/2 box of vermicelli
1 1/2 spicy Sausage (I used the brand Redwood)
1/2 Maggie bouillon cube
1/4 tablespoon of Seasoning salt (optional)
1/2 tablespoon of Black Pepper
1 cup of fresh Spinach (washed)
5 Cherry Tomatoes (cut in half)
3 tablespoons of Vegetable oil
1/3 cup of water

Place water on stove and bring to a boil. Salt is not necessary at this point. When water comes to a boil add vermicelli and cook al dente. Drain and set aside. In a medium size saucepan on medium heat add in oil and cook sausage until golden brown or desired color. I like mine a little dark. Add in seasoning salt, black pepper, spinach, crumbled bouillon cube and water. Stir and let cook for 4 to 5 minutes allowing spices to come together.

Lastly, toss in pasta and cherry tomatoes. Toss a little more making sure spaghetti is coated with spices and allow the ingredients to cook for 5 minutes and SERVE.
