Let me tell you a little bit about how I found this recipe:
I love Target. Plain and simple. When they began their dollar section a few years back I fell in love even more. My husband hates the dollar section because it's next to impossible for me to enter without leaving with at least one thing out of there.
One day I came across a little 24 page cookbook for kids titled, Disney Family Fun: Cooking with Kids: Everyday Fun Foods. I'm pretty sure it's a condensed and maybe updated version of this cookbook. For such a small cookbook it sure packs a lot of fun food ideas! Here's a recipe for one of my favorites, Squid Dogs, that I adapted to make a little healthier.
4 hot dogs (you can buy nitrate free versions by Oscar Mayer)
thin whole wheat spaghetti, about 60 pieces
Cut hot dogs into 3-4 sections each. Spear each hot dog portion with dry spaghetti as shown in the picture below.
Boil the hot dog-spaghetti pieces until the pasta is tender, about 6-8 minutes. Serve alone or with ketchup or butter for dipping.
