“This is a recipe I was missing from home. Lennie very kindly came up with it for me. It comes from the Company's Coming Pasta book. I have included my own variations on it. The pasta actually cooks in the sauce. I love this stuff and so did my kids!”
8 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (10 ounce) cans tomato soup
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (10 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, with liquid
  • 1 lb hot dog, cut up bite size
  • 8 ounces small shell pasta
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder


  1. In a large dutch oven, combine everything; cover; cook slowly until shells are tender but firm. This should take 15 to 17 minutes.
  2. My own variation: I always browned my sliced weiners in the pot first before I added the remaining ingredients. I also added a bit of garlic powder, and topped it with cheese at the end.
