Picnicking & Tailgating

Prepare the sauce a day or two ahead.  Reheat in microwave and pour into a thermos to keep hot.  Prepare the noodles the day of the picnic or tailgate party.  Then place in hot thermal container to keep hot.  At your site, just put the sauce and spaghetti together. 

Just put the grate cheese in a plastic container and into the ice chest to keep chilled.  Sprinkle over the spaghetti when ready to chow down.
