This comes from the Monroe Junior Charity League of Monroe, Louisiana. I haven't tried this recipe but I've noticed several people looking for recipes for crowds and it looks like a good one. ;-)

This is a delicious recipe. Just the flavor I was looking for! I scaled it down to 5 servings. Didn't have any celery in the house, but it was still good. Used Rigatoni instead of spaghetti. and mixed in some parmesan cheese. Because I felt the sauce wasn't enough I made some extra sauce (just 1 small can tomato paste, 1/2 cup water, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp milk pdr, 1 tbsp corn starch in the mixer till well mixed) and poured it over the top of the pasta mixture in a pyrex dish plus some crushed corn flakes. Then baked it for 30 mins at 180 (375). Amazing! I know it is a lot of changes - but I am such a fidget! Thanks for the basic recipe.
