     two (2) minutes..
2.  Add in hotdogs, ham, bacon.  Cook until almost golden brown.

     Remember to stir to get rid of lumps.
5.  Simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.

     If the sauce is salty for your taste, add water.  Careful to keep the 
     creamy consistency
7.  Turn off heat and add in pasta. Toss and serve.
     *You may opt to put sauce on top of the pasta instead of tossing them together.

You may use any ham, bacon or hotdog depending on your liking or availability. 
no salt was used in this recipe for ingredients are already salty.
If you will use powdered cream of mushroom, dilute it first in 1 cup of tap water before adding to the recipe.  This is to avoid lumps in the sauce.
