I was amazed to find this recipe online! I was about to copy it from an old index card for a friend when I decided to check the web first - less typing! We are about to celebrate our 40th anniversary this month - I got this recipe from a NY newspaper (I think the NY Times) the first year we were married! I'll used a jar of spaghetti sauce now. I think I'll make it for our anniversary dinner! Thanks.
