The mum headed to Asda where she bought two jars of pasta sauce – with ‘hidden veg’ – and a giant bag of fusilli, which she used half of.
She used both jars of smooth sauce, which she topped up with water, to make the sauce stretch even further.
The mum cooked 12 sausages in the oven, and then chopped them up with scissors, before adding them into the pasta.
She dished up her meal, which she captioned: “How to feed a family of nine with a fiver,” along with ‘Covid dinner’.

One person said: “Sausage pasta is a favourite in my house.”
Another commented: “Why is everyone telling her to make the sauce from scratch? She has a family of 9, I’d choose the jarred sauce if I was her too, doubt she has time.”
A third thought: “7 kids…? I don’t know how you do it. I’ve 6 dogs and 2 kids and the dogs are easier.”
