Let me say the first time I ever heard of this was Sheldon from Big Bang Theory http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Z4M-vE3-BM Since seeing that episode (a year ago-ish?) I have heard (apparently) this is common and many people grew up eating, or still eat spaghetti this way! I now feel I have an education gap.....how did I not know of this? I lived in many places (in the US) growing up, we didn't 'dress for dinner' or dine on gourmet foods, this totally sounds like something my mom WOULD have made if she had been in the know! LOL Beanie Weenies? YES.....but weenies in spaghetti? Who among you knew of this? Who has eaten it? Who likes it or hates it? I have the ingredients to make it this week.........spaghetti, check. sauce, check. hot dogs, check! LOL We are going to see what we've missed!
