Hot dog and Jalapeno Cheese Pasta
I found some hot dogs in the freezer that I wasn't using and some jalapeno cheese in the fridge that needed to be used, so that is pretty much how I came up with this.
2 cups elbow pasta, this one I used is all brown rice
2 hot dogs
1/2 diced onion
beef stock or 1 beef bouillon cube
1/2 cup to 1 cup of Cabot jalapeno cheese, your choice of how much cheese you like
-Cut up the hot dogs into bite size pieces and cook on medium high heat in a medium sized saucepan until a little brown.
-Add the diced onion to the hot dogs and cook until soft.
-Add the pasta and enough beef stock or if you are using the bouillon cube add that with enough water to just barely cover the pasta. Cook on medium high heat stirring frequently until the pasta is done. The idea is not to add too much beef stock or water because you don't want to drain the pasta.
-When the pasta is done mix in the cheese.
