Start heating up pot of spaghetti sauce over low-medium heat.  Stir frequently to avoid burning or splattering.  Fry up Italian sausage in frying pan; break it up so it is crumbly.  Stir cooked sausage and packet of sloppy joe mix into the sauce; reduce to low heat and continue to simmer.  Boil water in large pot for noodles add oil to prevent sticking.  Put noodles into boiling water -- *DO NOT BREAK!*  As noodles soften, they will slide into the water.  Cook noodles about 10 minutes until soft, then drain water.  While noodles are cooking, prepare bread:  Slice and butter bread, sprinkle with garlic and Italian herbs for taste.  Wrap bread in foil.  Place bread on top of boiling spaghetti noodles or sauce pot, or on griddle to warm it up.

Open salad greens and add other salad ingredients.  Serve spaghetti, sauce, and salad buffet-style.
