Reviews for Chili Spaghetti with Hot Dogs
"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."
