      Very good comfort food! When my kids were small I used to make a version of this a lot -- enjoyed this version with small changes by using 1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes (instead of canned tomatoes, tomato sauce and tomato paste) and 1 small can of V-8. I also skipped the green pepper and added celery and some frozen peas. This makes lots!!! Thanks for sharing!

      This recipe does make a lot. I followed the recipe exactly but added an equal amount of
      chopped celery to go along with the peppers and onions. It came out great and the family
      really enjoyed it. I took the left overs and put them in a casserole dish. The next night I sprinkled Mozzarella cheese on top, baked it in the oven and had it again.
      It was even better than the night before.

      I gave it 5 stars--you can tell I'm new to this!!! I've been looking for an American Chop Suey recipe that would remind me of the Chop Suey my Aunt used to make at our family outings. This is it!!! I loved it. My 5 year old grandson ate 3 helpings. I didn't put in the green pepper because that's not how I remembered it, but I did add celery. Delicious.
