Denise's American Chop Suey

This is my basic recipe for American Chop Suey. I sometimes add more spices to give it a little different taste, maybe a little Sage, Thyme or whatever. My DH said it wouldn't be "normal" if I followed my recipe exactly. This is a real comfort food. The Prep and Cook time are estimates
