Recipe by Gail K

This dish is similar to Sloppy Joes, without a bun. Kids and teens love it! It's not for the sodium conscious, however it can be lightened up a bit by using sodium free ketchup. My lovely next door neighbor in Springfield, VA gave me this recipe, I believe it came from her sister-in-law, Anne Garrette. It is 6 points per cup for you Weight Watcher's.Serve with a green salad and orange sugar free jello with shredded carrots and mandarin oranges added.
