Every time we visited Grandma Mary's house in Cheyenne, she made us her famous spaghetti. Every time it tasted exactly the same: delicious. Whenever I make the spaghetti now, it reminds me of her small kitchen and dining area where the entire family sat and ate. It was probably the quietest 15 minutes during our entire stay there, since we were so enamored by the tasty meal. Oh, and did I say there is bacon in the recipe?!
