This was sort of ordinary but I am sure little kids would gobble it up! Something was definitely missing. Sorry, we didn't care for it very much :(

With the exception of the exact amounts, and the green peppers which I dislike :), this is the same as what I was brought up on and called American Chop Suey. It was served to us in school and my mother made it often b/c of it's frugality. Love it, but haven't had it for ages. Think I'll make some this week! Lee
