In Mesa, Arizona, Patricia Novak uses a can of vegetable soup to dress up her sloppy joes. "When our children were growing up, I served these quick-to-fix sandwiches for lunch or a fast dinner with salad and dessert," she says. "Even today, my husband asks for them."

Why does this come up under vegetarian? To all veggies, just sub the ground beef for meat crumbles and use a vegetarian vegetable soup!
