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!
