Spaghetti for 100

 Spaghetti for 100
Spaghetti for 100 comes from Marilyn Monroe of Lansing, Michigan. "A club I belong to used this main dish for a fund-raising dinner," she reports. "One man came 50 miles because he'd had the dinner the year before and liked it so much. We sent him home with an extra container of sauce."
