I am rating this five stars because I took it to a party and everyone went berserk! :-) I will make it again but next time a little less sauce and I may try half the sugar as it was a little sweet for me. Also, maybe one bunch of onions, but add celery and cucumbers. I think it would be really good if you used Italian dressing and the french dressing with the celery seeds and not add the sugar. I will definitely make it again and update my rating when I do. Thanks for a great recipe.

Delish! I subsituted Splenda for the sugar and I used whole wheat spaghetti. I had a party of 10 eating this and I have PLENTY leftover.
