I have fond memories of our cafeteria food in school as a child and one of my favorite meals was the spaghetti. My great grand-mother was a cafeteria cook for 40 years and unfortunately I never got to twist her ear for some of the recipes. This is my rendition of my school's spaghetti. I know a lot of us loved school lunch and then there are some who still have nightmare's, lol. Give this a shot. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
