I make a batch up every week to keep my son's "hollow leg" filled. I like that its cheap, filling and he gets his veggies in! Also great for group get-together - it can be kept warm in a crockpot until serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat saucepan over medium heat while preparing veggies.
  2. Spray with cooking spray and add carrots, celery and onion. Saute for 3-4 minutes then add ground hamburger & chopped bell pepper.
  3. Cook over medium high heat until veggies are tender and meat is browned. Drain, if needed.
  4. Return to medium heat and add mamwhich, bring to boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes until veggies are completely cooked through and sauce is desired thickness. If you are in a rush, you can simply serve when hot OR you could put into crockpot until serving.
  5. Store in fridge in covered container or freeze. Can be re-heated in microwave and stovetop.

I made it in then kept it warm in the crock pot. I also used the food processor to "hide" the veggies. Kids liked it.
