Ingredients

  • 3 packages (two 16 ounces, one 7 ounces) thin spaghetti

  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 large green peppers, chopped
  • 3 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 6 to 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 jars (26 ounces each) spaghetti sauce
  • 3 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce

  • 9 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

Directions

Cook spaghetti according to package directions; rinse and drain. Toss with 1/4 cup oil; set aside.
