In honor of National Spaghetti Day, I am offering this recipe. My sainted mother, Millie, was widowed at a young age and used to make this crowd pleaser so she could serve a "comfort food" meal without breaking the bank. It pairs well with a nice salad! I tweaked several things over the years and make this dish a couple of times when it gets cool here in San Diego County (40's to 50 degrees). LOL! I hope you enjoy it!
