“This is the recipe most near and dear to my heart simply because it was the first one that I ever tweaked with to make my own. My love of cooking took off after receiving so many wonderful reviews and requests for this recipe. That was when my husband and I were 20 year old vegetarians with our first child. Thirteen years and three more children later, (no longer vegetarians, although I cook meatless more than I don't) this recipe is still alive and kicking and asked for just as much as ever. Play with the veggies and add any meat you like. I think the veggies sauteed in butter is the kicker. I have used homemade pasta sauce and Prego when in a hurry.”
