Healthy and Homemade “Taste like Spaghettios”

I came across a great blog and I found this great recipe there. Go check out Kimberly Fitness.

Healthy and Homemade “Taste like Spaghettios”

1 box Back to Nature Crazy Bugs Macaroni and Cheese  (You can find this in the health food section of your grocery store)
[1/4 cup low-fat milk and 1 tbsp. butter as called for on Mac and Cheese box]
2 Low-fat Hot Dogs of your choice
1/3 cup Amy’s Cream of Tomato soup (NOT Condensed)

Cook Pasta according to package directions.  Slice hot dogs in half, lengthwise, and then cut into slices.  When pasta is half-way done cooking (after about 3 minutes or so) add hot dogs to the pasta.  Allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes longer until pasta is cooked. 

Drain pasta and hot dogs.  To saucepan, add cheese packet, milk, butter and tomato soup.  Whisk until blended.  Add pasta and hot dogs back into pan and stir until blended.  Serve and enjoy!
