Recipe by misspink168

I got this from my local paper. Although it's called American Chop Suey it's nothing Asian!! It sounded so good that i had to add it hey but i haven't made it yet, so tell me what it's like! i don't eat bacon or beef and I'm allergic to peppers so i just omitted and changed some stuff.

Delicious. Follow exactly but can definitely use regular pasta. Delicious with shredded parmesan. Family favorite. I clipped this years ago from the paper.
