Fast and Easy - Franks and Beans Pasta
25 mins (prep 5, cooking 20)
12 ingredients
2-3 servings
It is the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve and I have very little in the house. So, I have to be creative with things I have in the cupboard. This is what I came up with tonight. It could very easily be made a lot lower in fat by using reduced fat hot dogs and cheese. I used whole wheat pasta which is also another easy way to sneak in a it of extra nutrients.
