I don't have any children but had a 6 yr. old unexpectedly join his parents at my house one night for dinner. I knew he wouldn't like our "adult" food, so I whipped up this special dish just for him. He was quite fascinated, wondering how the spaghetti got inside the hotdog and was quite happy with 2 of his favorite foods - hot dogs & spaghetti.
