Christmas, is just around the corner, so I'm finally making a start on the preparations.

MGG (My Greek God) is down in the basement, hunting out the Christmas treasures, the tree is  up, but looking rather naked,  apart from the lights and ribbon, it is bare, waiting for tomorrow, when the big trimming spree is occurring.

Our sweet Granddaughter, Melina (2.5 yrs) is coming to do it, I shall be helping!

I've  done all the other Christmassy stuff, but have strict instructions, not to start on the tree without her.

I suspect it may take a long time!

So I need something quick for lunch, quick but warm, filling and tasty, as the weather is wet and cold!

I decided on spaghetti with Greek country sausage sauce.

Most spaghetti sauces are quick to make, any pasta can be used, but to save time, spaghetti number ten, takes only seven minutes to cook.

Bring a large pan of water to the boil , add a teaspoon of salt, and put in the spaghetti.
Boil for the recommended time.

Tip: A small amount of olive oil, added to the boiling spaghetti, will prevent it boiling over.

When the spaghetti is cooked, drain well, and return to the pan.

Pour in the sausage sauce and mix it all up really well
