The other day when The Teenager and I went to lunch at Noodles & Company, I had an immediate flash back when we walked through the door. The smell hit me and sent me back 30 years to a meal that my sister would make for us when she was babysitting.

Chef Boyardee used to make a boxed spaghetti dinner kit. It included a box of spaghetti noodles, a can of meat sauce, and a can of Parmesan cheese. It was a very simple meal to fix, especially for a teenage girl babysitting her younger sisters.

I've checked the internet and it appears that Chef Boyardee no longer makes it. It's really a shame because we loved it and our friends from 30 years ago loved it.

I've mentioned this flashback to several of my friends now and they remember it.

Conagra (makers of Chef Boyardee products), we implore you bring back the Spaghetti dinner!
