What about Pasghetti? You must have heard of that!
Yes, I have heard that one before. My father (born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois) used to call it that when I was a child.
Ana, I haven't been in the LA and San Diego area for about 30 years, but good to know! Last time I was in LA was 1991. We were on the seventh floor of the Pan Pacific Hotel, right across from Disneyland, and an earthquake hit with lots of aftershocks. I won't bore you with the details, but after that I vowed never to return to that area unless it was something really, really important. Scared the daylights out of me and my children were there too. I was last in San Diego in the 1980s when my father lived on Coronado Island in a condo. Orville Redenbacher had a condo there too and my father had some good chats with him while in the elevator apparently.
