Fourth Edition

   No "nacho" or "Margarita" here, but two interesting spellings of "Johnny Marzetti."  DARE has 1946 and then 1965, but I've already antedated that.  Perhaps some word detectives in Ohio are interested in these variants.

Pg. 122:
   _Johnnie Bazzetti_
1 lb. ground round steak
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, minced
3 10 1/2-oz. cans tomato soup

   Cook noodles in boiling salted water for about 10 minutes or until tender.  Drain and combine with first mixture.  Let stand for an hour or more.
   Mix in split almonds, salt, pepper and Worcestershire to taste.  Place in  large greased baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Put in a pan of warm water.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, or until well heated.  Serves 12 to 14.
