Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to boil the spaghetti 3 to 4 hrs before consumption? Can i just pour the sauce over it after a few hours? Will it harden?

yes, you can cook the noodles first..to keep aside for later use. Cover it with a damp cloth to prevent it from drying out.

but what i often do is to briefly cook the noodles..then soak in water till I am ready to use it. remember to drain away the excess water.

Gina in some ways this dish reminds me of the Spanish dish called fideua a kind of paella but made with pasta (use dry pasta thinner than spaghetti) but it is more tomatoey. In fideua seafood features prominently although beef is not used and dried herbs like basil and dill are absent too.
have a look at so,e pics here http://images.google.com.au/images?q=fideua&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&sa=N&tab=wi
