This recipe is from my 1975 Campbell's Cookbook titled: A Campbell Cookbook Most-For-The-Money Main Dishes. I did however tweak the recipe a bit, substituting one soup for another, and also using another kind of noodles.

How To Make five o'clock franks

    *Note: Campbell's original recipe states to use a can of cheddar cheese soup, but I opt to use Fiesta Nacho Cheese, which gave this hot dish a bit of a 'kick'. Also, I cooked the frozen green beans with 2 tablespoons of water, in a 900 watt microwave oven for 9 minutes; stirring them after 4 mins and 30 sec. I should also mention, I cooked the noodles for 9 minutes.
