"We did like this for something different. We are not a big fan of that type of frozen mixed vegetables, so I may use just frozen corn, or canned carrots and peas next time."
"This one is on menu for next week. I tend to use Pace Picante Sauce (mild) in place of tomato sauce/sloppy joe mix. Yummy!"
"This was real tasty and easy to make!"
"<p>Good recipe. Very yummy. I used a can of sloppy joe sauce in place of tomato sauce and mix. I also used onion powder instead of an onion and radiatori pasta instead of penne. I also used canned veggies. (trying to use up what I already had) Turned out pretty good!</p>"
"I really like this recipe. I used ground Elk in place of beef. I like to find new ways to use wild game in my cooking. The re pile is simple and my kids loved it. I will be making again!"
