Story Behind this Recipe
I created this recipe from the days when I worked at a a cafeteria. The flavor varies depending on how thick the pasta is and how well you drain the water. Adjust the flavor by varying the amount of ketchup.
Cook the pasta until it's still a bit firm. Flavor the ingredients then add the pasta to keep the dish from being watery. It's a good idea to pour some oil over the pasta.
