  • spaghetti dinner for 200+

     Many years ago, in my Taste of Home magazine, there was a recipe for a spaghetti sauce/spaghetti dinner for 200+ people. I cannot find this recipe anymore and would appreciate if anyone still has it?  I am harvesting lots of tomatoes from my garden and would love to make a large batch of spaghetti sauce with them. Thank you for your time and help! :) My email is ambersgramie@sbcglobal.net
