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.

Funny that I should find this recipe posted here on Zaar. I live right down the street from Lexington and this recipe rivals the spaghetti that they serve to the kids. GREAT RECIPE and serves a TON of people with large servings.

Awsome recipe which was LOVED by the North Sea Fire Departments Ladies Auxiliary! I did however have to alter a few things for lack of time on my part. I used chicken breasts which I cut up into small pieces. I then used the canned tomates, tomatoe paste and the katsup. I then sauted onions, green peppers and the celery in butter and added that to the sauce. I also added garlic paste from Trader Joes to. I then added the cut up raw chichen to the sauce and it cooked in the sauce releasing it's juices to add flavor. And my last addition was I added some Bertoli 5 cheeses spagetti sauce to the sauce since I omitted the broth. Didn't mean to hack the original recipe but time was short. It never would have been sucessful with out this awsome recipe here though. Thank you!!! :-)
