Baked Spaghetti

“What do you feed all those kids?” was a question we have often been asked through the years.
Simple and fast were my guidelines for most supper meals.
Baked Spaghetti was a popular standby that I liked to make. It whips up easily for those busy summer days and makes spaghetti a bit more special.
