Yes, thats right...spaghetti is coming out of these hot dogs!!! I loved this recipe as soon as I saw it! Its such a cool idea! My kids loved this and it was fun to make! I served this with a cheddar cheese sauce, as you can see in my photo! You can use a cheese sauce from your favorite mac n' cheese recipe!

This one surprised me. Even awakened the child in me -- I LOVED it! So did my "Oscar Night" guests! This was fast, easy and delicious... and comforting. My grandmother used to make "Weenie-Mac" -- and this one brought me right there to Sunday dinner at grandma's. A definite keeper! I passed the recipe along, too! Thanks, LILLIANCOOKS!
