Fun with Food

Someone on Facebook had posted a link to a photo of hot dog pasta. It looked so weird that I had to try it for a pot luck, which I went to last night.

You start by poking the pasta through the hot dog pieces.

Then you cook until al dente.

I made a simple sauce (onions, oregano, parsley and stewed tomatoes) and threw it on before going to the party. The pasta was actually a bit undercooked (because I was worried that the hot dog pieces were going to split up too much), but by adding the semi-watery sauce, it finished cooking in the container.

People thought it was cool. So did I. And actually, it tasted quite good! Try it!

I can not (no matter how hard I try) wrap my head around hot dog and pasta together, it looks pretty but nah I can't do it. : )

The before shot looks weird and unappetizing, but it looks delicious in the second shot!

When I make spaghetti, I use smoked sausage instead of meatballs. It's so good. I've just never tried pasta IN smoked sausage! :)

Yeah I'm with Tara...the before picture almost made me throw up in my mouth a little.
