READY IN: 48mins
Recipe by littleturtle

Quick, really easy, and very tasty all-purpose sauce for pasta and lasgna; a great way to get kids to eat their veggies. Ground turkey or beef with carrots, green beans, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes.

This was very good and I enjoyed the added flavor of the Italian sausage. I did find it a bit too meaty and added a can of tomato sauce. Thanks for a tasty meal.
