Greenwich church dishes up nostalgic Spaghetti Creole Supper
GREENWICH — Nearly 200 diners dug in for a nostalgic dinner at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Greenwich.
The menu was the attraction as guests enjoyed the church’s annual Spaghetti Creole Supper. The main course is an old favorite that was served every Thursday in the Greenwich Public Schools back in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
The original recipe — tomato sauce, onions, celery, red and green bell peppers and ground beef, mixed with #8 spaghetti topped with shredded cheese and baked in the oven — was put together by church mothers who worked in the school cafeterias.
Over 180 generous portions of Spaghetti Creole, along with salad, bread and dessert, were served up at the fundraiser for the church’s Christian Education Programs.
New to this year’s event, 18 half-tray orders of Spaghetti Creole were sold, to be heated up in ovens around the community for guests to enjoy during Super Bowl Sunday.
