Scrumptious Baked Spaghetti

This dish is sure to be a huge hit with your family, from age 3 to 101. It’s true. My mother-in-law will be 101 years old on September 24th.   She was a good cook in her day, but loves it now when I fix baked spaghetti for her.  It’s also my husband’s  latest favorite dish.   By the way, my mother-in-law loves cards, so if you’d like to send her one for her 101st, leave me a comment and I’ll send you her address.

    Bill loves baked spaghetti and since I’m finally cooking again, I’ll try it. i’d love to send your mother-in-law a card, and ask her, what’s her best advice for making it to 101!

    Hey Liz!
    I’ve never known anyone who was 101 so I’d love to send her a card! Sept 24 was my brother’s birthday. He would’ve been 55 this year.

    I tried this recipe in one huge batch last week because I needed to feed a large group and it was my husband’s birthday. Well, I got to enjoy getting all of the praises that you, Liz, deserved. This was a very big hit! And the large group I was cooking for is first generation Italian!
