Back to the food theme -- anybody remember Johnny Marzetti on the school lunch menu? When I first met Gerry he introduced me to a very similar dish which in Maine was called American Chop Suey. Ingredients included pasta, hamburger, and tomato sauce, baked in a casserole. Don't remember eating it at home, seems like we hardly ever (never?) had pasta, but do remember eating it elsewhere. And I learned today on the Ohio History Central Blog that the Ohio version was introduced at an Italian Restaurant in Columbus in the 1920s.
