I’ll be trying this for lunch. Seems an easy enough recipe to follow for newbie momcooks like me. I hope the toddlers love it.

I normally add 1 small can of tomato sauce and fill the can with water and add that too. Also, I usually put potatoes, carrots, and peas. Simmer it until sauce is reduced to the desired consistency. Great over hot rice.
