My mother always made this delicious dish when we had lots of company or we were going to a church dinner. She'd make two casseroles and save one in the freezer for another time.—Jinger Newsome, Gainesville, Florida

"I was requested to bring a spaghetti noodle dish to a scouting event. This dish is what I brought. It was the first dish to disappear, even over the restaurant dishes. My family also enjoys the goulash. Thanks so much for sharing this dish. Great for potlucks. I think the chili sauce makes it different."

"As I was making this the first time, I kept getting nostalgic whiffs from my childhood. When I tasted it, I knew why: it was just like the spaghetti my grandma used to make. I think it's the chili sauce that makes it so retro good!"
