My daughter-in-law gave me this recipe about seven years ago. They came to visit us and she made it for a supper for the kids. Of course, we all loved it. You could use Kielbasa instead of the vegetarian hot dogs and that would be good too! I have made it that way a few times and it tastes so good that way! When we have vegetarian guests, I make it the regular way for them and we still love it that way too. Cook time does not include the time for cooking the vegetables ahead of time.
