Friday Favorites- Recipe for Sloppy Joes

So I made this recipe last week, and it was so good I had to share. You can adapt it to how much you need for your family. The recipe below made 8 sloppy joes. You can also use ground turkey instead of beef for a lighter meal. I used Muir Glen Tomato Sauce since I had those, but you can use whatever brand you have. You can also increase or decrease the amount of vegetables to your liking. I also found that letting it cook longer only added to the flavor and by time they were leftovers the next day they were so good. Enjoy!
