Yum Yum Gimme Some...

This is SO EASY to make, and yummy too. It's even pretty kid friendly (hot dogs, pasta, cheese) so give it a try and let me know if you love this as much as we do (and by we I mean the hubby, AND all the friends...there are never any leftovers).

Seashell Hot Dog Bake


8 oz. dried medium shell macaroni

1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)

1 clove garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. butter

1 16-oz. pkg. beef frankfurters, halved lengthwise and sliced

1 1/2 cups purchased spaghetti sauce

1 large tomato, chopped (1 cup)

1 4-oz. can (drained weight) mushroom stems and pieces, drained

1 8-oz. carton dairy sour cream

2 oz. provolone cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)

2 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare macaroni according to package directions; drain and set aside.

2. In a large skillet cook onion and garlic in hot butter over medium heat until nearly tender. Stir in frankfurters and cook until lightly browned. Stir in spaghetti sauce, tomato, and mushrooms. Bring to boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream and half of the cheeses. Stir mixture into the drained pasta. Spoon into a 2-quart casserole.

3. Cover and bake about 30 minutes or until hot. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Bake, uncovered, 5 minutes more or until cheese melts. Makes 6 servings.

Happy Eating!!!


  1. how come they call it seashell, I thought for sure it would have some sort of shell fish in it - I'll have to test it out, looks delicious

  2. They call it seashell because you use the shell shaped macaroni.

  3. Is this what you and Amanda were eating last night? It smelled delicious!

  4. Yup that was it. By the way, is this Lexi or Cassie (cuz I don't know an Allie) :)
