Wonderful and tasty way to sneak veggies into your family's meal! I added some shredded carrots and zucchini to the tomato mixture! hehehe Very tasty and easy meal! Our supper was delayed so I stuck the pan in the oven on warm for 30 minutes until we could return to the task at hand and chow down! YUM! It was still great BIG + for busy family's- I love meals that have 'holding' capabilities bc you just never know what is gonna pop up at supper time! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
This was a tasty dish. The directions are a bit sketchy, so I just did what made sense to me. I doubled the recipe for the family. It sounds like the eggs go uncooked....I didn't want to do that so I added the beaten eggs to the browned meat mixture after I drained it, then added the sauces, brought it to a boil, and let it simmer for 15 minutes as directed. Everyone enjoyed this. Thanx for posting the recipe.
