Kids Lunch! Spaghetti and Hot Dogs!




About: Hi! My name is Natalie! I have an awesome husband that lets me be a Play-at-home mom of 3! We homeschool and do projects daily! Check out my blog Doodlecraft for more awesomeness!

My 3 kids had a complete BLAST making this!
Hot Dog Spaghetti!

Basically kid friendly spaghetti and meatballs!

Step 1: Skewer the Dogs!

Using hard spaghetti pasta...we used angel hair...
Skewer them right through hot dog slices!

The more the merrier!
They end up looking like weird hot dog kabobs!

Step 2: Boil, Boil, Toil and Trouble!

Boil the pasta kabobs in hot water.

Takes as long as just cooking pasta!  Follow package instructions!

(ours took about 7 minutes)

Step 3: Enjoy!

The kiddos loved eating their "wormy hot dogs"...
We topped it off with some spaghetti sauce!

(disclaimer...I didn't taste it, but I am sure it tastes like pasta and hot dogs)

    Lunch.. Because the 2 L coke you gave your kid this morning isn't enough to ensure a premature death by obesity.

    Do the noodles cook completely even though they are inside of the hot dog? I want to make this with some kids coming over, but I don't want them to bite into the hot dog part and get a hard noodle.

    Brilliant idea! Can't wait to try this with my kids!

    Really cool idea! My son loves pasta- I'll be trying this to get more protein (and veggies too) into his dinners.

    This is too cool! I was thinking about Dr. Sheldon Cooper (from The Big Bang Theory) when I first read your post, He's always wanting spaghetti with little hot dogs cut up in it...

    This blew my mind.

    This is so cute! I love how you put the noodles through the hot dog. My sister would love this with veggie dogs!
