The Strickland Sauce / Sloppy Joe Pasta

I am finally getting around to update my blog! So sorry I have been so inactive here lately! But don't worry I have plenty of recipes to share with yaw:)! Weather here is about to make me extremely mad. As ya know my baby girls 2nd birthday is coming up on Thursday with her party that following Saturday! Guess what? They are calling for some winter weather today and Tuesday! I really pray that they are wrong and we don't get anything! Or if we do it melts fast so it does not interfere with her party!! Pray with me everyone!

This is the Strickland sauce so we call it. Its been passed around my moms side of the family sense I don’t know when. We use this sauce for Spaghetti by using it as is. Or we add more chili powder and diced onions for Chili to top hot dogs and such. Also us this for sloppy joes by adding onions and bell pepper!

The Strickland Sauce

2 Lb of Lean Ground Beef; Browned & Drained
2 can of Tomato Soup
1 ½ cans Ketchup
2 Teaspoons Chili Powder ( For chili we use 2 Tablespoons but I would add it to your taste )
:For Sloppy Joe's:
Add 1 Large onion Diced
And 1 Large Green Pepper Diced
* You will saute this with the ground beef *
:For Chili:
Like I said add more Chili Powder
& Saute 1 Diced Onion with your Meat

Mix Browned Meat with all other ingredients and simmer on low for 15 mins.

This we call Sloppy Joe Pasta
*For this dish I grated my onion and bell pepper into my meat as it was browning my hubby does not like big chunks of it but if you don’t mind it I prefer it diced!* I also used Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta the swirl kind 3/4 of a box. You can use any you like.*
