Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Jimmie Puccio's restaurant in the Greenbush Italian area of Madison. Grandma and Grandpa Gevelinger (Ray and Eleanor) visited this restaurant when they were dating. Grandpa especially always loved spaghetti. This restaurant was located at 906 Regent Street and was eventually replaced by Josie's restaurant, lost to fire after 2000.
