DIRECTIONS

  • Dice onion and saute in 1 tbs olive oil in a pot, large enough to also boil the pasta inches.
  • Ad uncooked pasta, tomato sauce, water and half and half.
  • Season with salt, pepper, basil, oregano and some instant broth to taste.
  • Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and stir frequently.
  • While pasta and tomato sauce cook, slice hot dogs into 1/4 inch slices and saute in some butter until browned on both sides and ad too the pasta/sauce mix, continue to cook until pasta reaches preferred consistency. If necessary, ad some more liquid (e.g. water, half and half) should pasta absorbs too much sauce.
  • Right before serving, stir in shredded cheese.
  • Serve with buttered slices of bread.
  • The dish should have the overall texture of a baked casserole: thick, the sauce will be mostly absorbed by the pasta. Leftovers heat up great in the micro wave the next day.
