Mozzarella Spaghetti

"I got this recipe from a "Canadian Dairy Farmers" card from the 1990's. My hubby loves this as he is a cheese fanatic. I like it because the spaghetti cooks right in the pot with the sauce so I have one less pot to wash."

<p>I live in Montreal, Canada with my husband and two children (boy born in 1998 and girl born 2000). No, we weren't going for a Y2K baby, she was born in August :-) I love to cook but I hate decidng what to make. I'm just starting to plan my meals in advance and am finding it a real challenge. I love the fact that real people review these recipes and add their own hints and tips. <br /> <br />My son has recently (Sept 8, 2003)started the ketogenic diet for his epilepsy so I'm learning how to disguise cream and oil and how to make miniscule portions look bigger. It's an interesting challenge. As of Februaury 27, 2004 there has been no improvement in my son's seizures so we have have decided to stop the diet. We have to stop the diet gradually though so it will be about two months before he can eat regular food again. There is one more medication we can try and after that our last option is a VNS (vagal nerve stimulator). It is similar to a pacemaker but for the vagal nerve in your neck instead of for the heart. Wish us luck! <br />Update Feb 2005- Well, my son had the vns implanted in June 2004 and it hasn't stopped the seizures but it did make them shorter (30-45 seconds instead of 2 to 2 1/2 minutes). His doctors plan to increase the setting until we see more results or the side-effects get too annoying.</p>
