This is literally *my* recipe. I made it up. It's also a family favorite. Because this is one that really isn't written down, it's hard to come up with set quantities. How many noodles are needed depends on how tight you pack them. That, in turn, will determine how much tomato/spaghetti sauce is needed to cover the noodles, and how large a baking dish is needed. How much or little seasoning is used is a personal thing. I just sprinkle some in. As you can guess, this dish is never exactly the same twice in a row.
