Spinach, egg noodles and a creamy hot dog mixture is topped with peas and crumbled bacon. What a casserole! This is a recipe I received in German class 24 years ago. It looks unusual, but it is very delicious. I don't know where the teacher found the recipe. Drop biscuits go well with this casserole.

These ingredients are things that we like seperately but they do not mix well. I even added seasonings and substitute whole wheat penne for the egg noodles and corn for the peas. They just don't seem to mix well and the kids did not like it at all. We had a huge struggle to get them to eat it. Read More

added the garlic powder and worcestire as recommended by another user. also added a layer of mozzarella cheese with the bacon and peas and that helped a lot...then again what dish doesn't benefit from a layer of cheese? Read More

With a few minor modifications this recipe turned out delicious. I used fresh spinach and sauteed it with garlic and onions. To the hot dog mixture I added both tabasco and thyme for flavor. Additionally I used vegetarian soy-based hot dogs and bacon. The final dish was creamy and flavorful low-fat and high in protein! Read More

This is a kind of fun recipe. If I had kids they probably would like it. Like others I added some Worcestershire sauce and a couple splashes of Tabasco Sauce. Also sauteed some onions and used Mushroom soup with Roasted Garlic. Fat Free Sour Cream and 2% cheese limited the fat. I love the fat free white smoked meat Turkey Hot Dogs...so the recipe is a lot lower fat than the original. Whole Wheat noodles also helped. I diced up some zucchini and added that to the soup mixture as well to give it some REAL vegetable besides frozen peas. Doesn't hurt to mix it up a bit before putting it in the oven. Read More

Very tasty! I was skeptical but it turned out great! I added some garlic powder to the spinach. I added some cayenne pepper a dash or two of worcestershire sauce and a tad of tabasco to the soup mixture. Yummy! Read More

What a great way to get picky kids to eat different foods! This casserole tasted GREAT! I will make it again and again. Hot dogs can also be interchanged with chicken or turkey pieces and have a more "grown-up" taste! I loved this recipe and passed it out at work and a couple of moms were so happy that their children ate some green veggies!!! Read More
