NEWBERRY — St. Mark’s Catholic Church is resuming its spaghetti supper after a year long break.
The supper has been going on since 1987 and is held the Saturday before Ash Wednesday, so the actual date changes every year. This year’s supper will be held from 5-8 p.m. Saturday at St. Mark’s Catholic Church, 928 Boundary St., Newberry.
The supper has been organized by the Men’s Club with lots of help from the Ladies Guild and many other parishioners.
The sauce is a recipe that has been used from the beginning. It is prepared by parishioners and brought to the church hall on the day of the supper. It is a meaty sauce with eight pounds of ground beef in about 14 quarts of sauce. A vegetarian sauce is prepared for those who do not eat meat.
In addition to a generous plate of spaghetti with sauce and Parmesan cheese, each person gets a tossed salad with one of the homemade dressings, bread stick, and dessert.
The dressings are Jerry’s Favorite Dressing, which is red in color and sweet in flavor, and French dressing which is mainly vinegar and oil with a few seasonings.
The dessert has been Italian cookies such as pizzelles and biscotti as well as tortoni which is an Italian ice cream dessert.
Beverages include coffee, iced tea and water with wine available for a donation.
Purchase tickets from parishioners that you know, or get them at the door. Adults plates are $8, youth (ages 4-8) are $4 and children age 3 and under eat free. Take-out plates are available for adults only. Quart of sauce are also available.
