Spanish Noodles - Nothing Spanish About It

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Emmelyn Stieb

This is mixture of browned hot dog slices, pasta, and sweet tomato sauce. The recipe came from my great-grandmother and has been passed down in my family. It is definitely considered comfort food in my house.

Comfort food at its best...Like a tomato-based macaroni and cheese. This is an easy one-pan dish that the whole family loves.
