Fancy Franks

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

My Mom calls this "the recipe on the door" because that's where she kept it. She said it came from a magazine in the 70s. My Fancy Franks turn out a little different each time because I like to try variations. It's a family favorite and a complete "kid" recipe (although I still love it). You may find you want to add a touch more tomato sauce. I also like to throw in a few fresh tomatoes.

My daughter LOVED it!! (so did I). I used a couple extra hot dogs because I am greedy and subbed the chopped tomatoes for tomato sauce since thats what I had .My noodles were pasta shells. This will be made all the time from now on. Thanks for sharing AmyZoe!!!
