I make this when I need a dish for a funeral or when someone has come out of the hospital. The reason being that it makes alot, so it will serve alot of people or can be reheated when a person returns from a hospital stay & can't get around & cook alot. You can also freeze part of the sauce for another time before adding the spaghetti.
