This is a recipe that I have been tinkering around with since January 26th, 1986 ("Super Bowl XX"... Da Bears!) It was my first attempt (as a young adult) to create a recipe. I've changed it a lot over the years. I've been told that it is pretty much perfect, so I stopped playing with the recipe about 15 years ago. It is requested for any get-together that I attend (hence the name... "Rosie, bring your famous mostaccioli"). I've easily doubled or tripled this recipe to feed up to 50+ people at the local shelter or at huge parties. This is also a great recipe because you can make the entire batch, and then freeze half or all of it (before baking) to have a ready made dinner with only baking time involved. (*Note: This recipe makes about 10 lbs). I hope you enjoy my recipe.
