This a delicious quick fix when I have no meat in the house, and can't find anything to eat. I keep all of the ingredients on hand. Give it a try!!! *Note* This recipe is very forgiving feel free to substitute!!! (I use whatever is on hand)

This was really easy to do. I used the ketchup (which I never would have thought of using!). I also used the tomatoes. I added cooked brown rice - stirred it in. Not sure if anyone was really excited about it, because there was a lot left, but I think it was pretty good.
