Spaghetti strung hotdogs and beans w/ Garlic and Parmesan

If you are looking for something fun for the kids, but with a little added nutrition, try this Spaghetti stung hotdogs and beans! If you don't do meat, try just the beans :) Let the kids string it!!!

Here's how:

First let me say that the amount of spaghetti to use for each person is the size around of a quarter uncooked.

Cut each hotdog into 1 - 1 1/2 inch pieces.
Take 5 strands of uncooked spaghetti and poke them through 3 hotdog pieces, spacing them evenly.
Set each aside until you complete them all for the number of people you need to feed.

***Remember a quarter sized amount of uncooked spaghetti per person is a safe guess.

For the beans, put them on whole, 1 bean per strand of spaghetti. I have to make a meatless version of every dinner for my veggie eater, and beans worked great!

Place them in a pan of boiling water, and let boil until the spaghetti reaches the desired tenderness. About 10-12 minutes.

Add as much butter, salt, and garlic powder as you like and toss.

Plate the noodles and top with shredded parmesan.

or...... Do what my mom did.

Add cheese like you would for macaroni and cheese :)

She also used different veggies!
