This is my mom's spaghetti recipe. It is an easy to make and easy to reheat using the oven.
My mom is now bed bound due to an extreme case of Rheumatoid Arthritis that has totally crippled her hands and caused the loss of one foot. Up until a year ago she cooked for herself, my dad and any company that happened to drop in. Her Arthritis was just a fact of life.
I have continued to make this like she did and it is a great pot-luck, crowd pleaser and my hubby and son love it,leftovers do not last long in our house. So with much love here is moms recipe.
