Weisswurst with Creamy Spaghetti

Weisswurst are delicate, creamy, white Bavarian sausage made from veal and pork. These sausages do not have a long shelf life, as traditionally Bavarians won’t eat Weisswurst after noon on the day they are made. The classic way of consuming them is to suck the contents out of the casing. But you probably won’t mind being spared that pleasure on this occasion. If you do not have Weisswurst, you can use other smooth sausages such as Veal Bratwurst or Frankfurters for this recipe.

Preparation Time: 5 min

You will need:

  • 8 Swiss Deli Weisswurst sausages (500 g)

  • 2 teaspoons French or sweet German mustard
  • Scrunched-up handful of flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped (optional)
  • Salt and ground white pepper

2. Drop the spaghetti into the other pan and boil until al dente. Drain the noodles and return them to the pan.

3.Stir in the Emmental, crème fraiche or sour cream, mustard and parsley (if using). Season with salt and white pepper to taste, and dollop onto plates.
