“I've made this using whatever spaghetti sauce I have on hand. I've also made it with sausage instead of the ground beef. I prefer to drain my veggies and add extra water, except the kidney beans. I have also used Veg All plus kidney beans (and I don't drain either of them). It is very good that way.”
