INEXPENSIVE, EASY and DE-LICIOUS!!! My aunt made this for us when we were growing up and now I make it for my family. The hint of sweetness makes it a kids favorite.

We used petite diced tomatoes & left them as is. We omitted the salt, used extra minced garlic (3 cloves – total) & veg. stock instead of bullion cubes. We added close to 1T Italian seasoning, about 6 oz. fresh mushrooms (personal preference) & a couple shakes of LA Gold (hot sauce). This is a great week-night “quick fix” dinner.


Don't use 3 beef stock cubes if making this in the Uk or Ireland - just use 1/2 a knorr stock cube. They're much smaller in the states.


This is such a delicious recipe. I only make 2 small changes. First, I use small pasta shells instead of the larger. Second, I use a spicy ground sausage instead of ground beef, it gives the recipe a nice sweet and spicy taste. Excellent recipe!!
