Hi, can we make this recipe before-hand for a party and it will still be moist enough and taste good?

   Hi Siya, You can keep the boiled spaghetti and sauce ready. Just before serving, quickly toss them and bake it. However, if you do not have that much time after the guest arrives, add some milk and bake it again for a while.
