  • 1 lb spaghetti noodles
  • 1 lb Italian tomato sauce (the kind used is called “Italian” but tastes sweet and is very smooth in texture)
  • 8 ounces tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • ½ cup minced carrots and red peppers
  • 2 cups diced or thinly sliced hot dogs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp seasoning mix
  • 7 ounces evaporated milk
  • grated cheese for topping (use a processed cheese similar to Velveeta)


  • Cook the noodles according to package directions. Set aside.
  • Place the garlic, onion, and oil in a large saucepan or skillet. Saute for 3-4 minutes or until soft and fragrant. Add the ground pork and brown the meat until it’s completely cooked.
  • Add the minced vegetables and hot dog pieces, and stir to combine. Add the water and allow the mixture to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and tomato paste to the meat and continue to simmer the mixture for another 10-15 minutes. Add the evaporated milk and salt, and stir until incorporated.
  • Combine the noodles and the sauce in a large pot or mixing bowl. Top with grated cheese. You can grate a processed cheese similar to Velveeta and let it melt into the top layer of the spaghetti.
