Macaroni and Hot Dogs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by Eva Smith. The printed version of this recipe makes me giggle because there is a typo where the hot dogs are called 'hot gods'. Eva didn't specify serving yield, so I am guessing.

Ahhh this takes me back. This is one of those classics I will just never tire of! If you want to shortcut even more, skip the peppers and tomatoes and just add a health scoop of salsa! Also good with a scoop of chili. PS - CONGRATS on your health! You are looking so fabulous and I totally commend your effort, dedication and willpower!
