This is a nice change of pace. I did add frozen mixed vegetables. I also cut the hot dogs into bite size pieces and cooked them with the macaroni. I did not have Velveeta so used cubed Colby/Monterey Jack cheese & shredded Cheddar/Mozzarella cheese combo. I will make again & this time use the Velveeta.
