My five year old asked that I make this recipe for every meal we have for the rest of his life. While my husband and I weren't as in love with it as he was, it is going to be something that is added into our normal menu

This was pretty quick to cook up for lunch. It was a good for a hot dog recipe. I added a 1/4 cup of brown sugar just for kicks. I would make this again when ever I have leftover hot dogs in the package from the grill.

I thought this was just okay. However, this dish made quite the impression on my daughter and she's requested a couple of times since.

This meal might not please a wide variety of tastes, but it is yummy, especially with the addition of cheese. I used fat-free turkey dogs and garden vegetable pasta, making it pretty healthy, too. We'll see how my husband likes it!

This was an excellent alternative to the traditional spaghetti dinner.

Left out the hot dogs and used hot chili powder. Fabulous side dish for those who like it spicy!
