Here's a cooler-downer I recently thought of: When the Spaghettios are too hot, stir in a spoonful of cold plain yogurt. If you like chicken tikka masala, you'll like the tomato-dairy combination, and personally I get a kick out of the irony of mixing organic yogurt with, yes, Spaghettios. Also--I think this may be in another comments list somewhere here--frozen peas can be thrown into just about anything to cool it off. I've used them for Spaghettios (We really don't eat them all *that* often....) and also for soup.
