"I have been making this for years and still enjoy it, it’s a pretty simple recipe and you can adjust all amounts to your taste You could use olive oil but the flavor may be overpowering, I recommend to use a mixture of cooking oil and butter, I most usually make the spaghetti a day ahead and refrigerate, prep time includes cooking the spaghetti"
