Now, a recipe! Nothing too original here, just a twist on a classic, Sloppy Joe's
We're trying to use up some of the food in our house that's been around for awhile & gets pushed to the back of the cabinet, and this weekend I found a can of Manwich. I'm not a huge fan of the stuff, but Eddie loves it, so I decided we'd make sloppy joe's tonight, but a version that's a little different than just meat & sauce on a bun.
Sloppy Joe's (35 points for entire recipe)
1 pound ground beef
1 can Manwich
2 medium onions, diced
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1 c. spinach, chopped
1/2 c. chopped carrots
2 stalks celery, chopped
1. Saute all veggies in small amount of olive oil. When all veggies are cooked & tender, remove from heat & place to the side.
2. Brown ground beef (or turkey) and drain any excess grease. Add veggies back to the mixture, then add the sauce & heat through.
3. Serve in low-calorie pitas or low-calorie buns of your choice. (I prefer pitas because they are less messy!)
Not a very difficult recipe, just a little twist on an old favorite!
