“From Cooking Light, Jan 1997. Original calls for 6 oz. ground round and 6 oz turkey breast. I have had really good luck feeding this to toddlers and veggie-phobic adults! Feel free to play with the veggies to your own preference; tonight I made these with 1 c mushroom and 1 c finely diced zucchini squash. I also prefer balsamic or cider vinegar here to the red wine. Finally, this does tend to turn out pretty "saucy", so if you like your joes thicker you might consider adding a bit of tomato paste. Enjoy!”
