Prepare the macaroni by cooking according to package instructions. Drain the liquid and set the macaroni aside.
Make the meat sauce. Heat oil in a pan. Sauté onion and garlic. Once onion softens, sauté ground beef and ground pork until it browns. Add hotdog and bell peppers. Cook for 1 minute.
Add Knorr Beef cube. Stir and then pour tomato sauce and water. Cover the pot and boil for 20 to 25 minutes using low to medium heat. Note: add more water if needed. Season with sugar, salt, and ground black pepper. Set aside.
Make the white sauce by melting butter in a saucepan. Add all-purpose flour. Stir and cook for 1 minute. Gradually pour milk while stirring. Add half of the cheese. Stir and continue cooking until the sauce thickens.
Combine macaroni and meat sauce in a bowl. Add the remaining cheese. Toss.
Preheat oven to 350F. Transfer the macaroni with meat sauce in a baking pan. Pour white sauce on top and then spread evenly.
