ok, this may sound like a weird combination...but hear me out, lol



The other night i was trying to decide what to have for dinner; a veggie dog, or plain pasta (preferably spaghetti)



now, i was like "wait a sec, how about i make both and just cut up the veggie dog and mix it into the pasta...i used to do that with the veggie ham slices, why not the veggie dog?"



but then i wasn't sure..., so i just made plain pasta lol



has anyone else done any combo's similar to this?

Sure, fake bacon or fake pastrami chopped and sauted in olive oil with garlic, spinach and sun-blushed tomatoes mixed into cooked spageghetti with toasted pine nuts sprinkled on top.



A veggie dog is really just another kind of sausage. Use them like you would any other sausage.

No, but I don't think it's too unusually. Omnivores can buy Spaghetti-O's and Franks alongside Spaghetti-O's with Meatballs in almost any grocery store.

yeah, i mix everything in together and if it tastes good, then thats great! i don't really go with any food rules (probably cos i don't know them, lol).



my spagetti and pasta ends up with anything and everything in it, in assorted combinations, including kidneybeans, butterbeans, borletti beans, 6 bean mix, teeny tiny homemade falafels, leftover nutloaf/nutburgers rolled into meatballs, corn, french beans and broccolli, baby tomato wedges, pan fried zuccinni slices and garlic, chunks/crumbles of soy protein or real veggie based vegeburgers, sliced tofu sausages, tofu burgers, etc etc etc.



basically whatever is lying around, and tastes nice, goes in there- same with any food, not just pasta! stops it getting boring, and ups the veggie/protein content too!



throw it all in there, go on, go for it..... rebel!

The only think I think I wouldn't try mixing with pasta was another starch, like I wouldn't make spaghetti and rice (then again there is rice pilaf...), or spaghetti and potatoes... but I do make pasta with veg canadian bacon sauteed in olive oil with garlic and then serve it in pasta with tomatoes and peas. It's super yummy.

My teens put cut up Yves tofu dogs in their Mac and "cheeze" all the time. Seems fine to me.

Pasta can have any sauce, from simple and plain (olive oil, a few spices, to very wierd combos. You can make plain marinara or something near a stir-fry with tofu in it. Franks and noodles used to be a staple at my house when I was a kid (they were egg noodles). Shells or elbows with veg chili is great too for "chili-mac."

While I haven't tried that particular combination, I'm craving those infamous canned biscuits from the refrigerator section, baked with the "hot dogs" and "cheese" in them. It's the first meat-like kid-friendly food craving I've had that isn't satisfied by Bacos.



I'm SO glad we have soy dawgs and recipes for non-dairy animal-friendly cheezes! I'm also glad my local grocer stocks canned biscuits that aren't made with lard...

Oh I've never tried adding a slice of cheese to the hot dog crescent rolls. Will have to try that, as I think I even have some soy cheese slices in my fridge now.

That sounds a lot like a veggie version of carbonara! Yummmmm....



As for pasta and potatoes, my Italian Farmhouse Cookbook has a recipe for Pasta e Patate and it says, "Pasta e patate can be found throughout Italy. It's a traditional peasant dish guaranteed, with its mix of two starches, to fill empty stomachs, and typical to the Italian tradition, it happens to taste just delicious, too." It's basically braised onions and potatoes with tomato sauce and pasta mixed in, and olive oil or hot pepper oil drizzled over. It's a fairly dry mix, as opposed to being really saucy.



But anyway, hot dogs and mac & cheese where one of my childhood faves-- why not do it with veggie dogs?
