“When my boys were still very small, I found an ancient community-type cookbook at Goodwill. I think this recipe was originally called German spaghetti, but was renamed by Very Super Bad Child Number One the first time I served it. I lost the cookbook long ago during one of our many moves, but the dish is still a favorite in our house. This makes a gracious plenty - perfect for freezing half for later. Sometimes we also add different flavors - chili powder, red pepper flakes or curry powder, depending on what mood we're in.”
