Yum
This is a fun and easy way to get the kids involved in cooking. You and your kids will love eating this simple entre' and will have even more fun making it. Just give them some spaghetti and hot dogs and let them thread away! :)


Low-Point Spaghetti-Threaded Hot Dogs
Ingredients:
- 1/2, 13.25 oz. box of whole grain thin spaghetti
- 10 turkey franks (I bought Jennie-O turkey franks)
Cut the ends off the hot dogs and cut them into thirds. Take two to three spaghetti strands and thread through each hot dog. Bring a large sauce pan of water to a boil. Place spaghetti-threaded hot dogs into boiling water, along with the rest of the left-over spaghetti. Boil until spaghetti is tender, strain and enjoy!
