I make this one quite a bit, or at least some version of it. It’s a very loose recipe and I change it a little every time I make it depending on my mood and what I have on hand. I decided to actually write it down this time so I could post it here. I happened to have a lot of leftover spaghetti noodles which were perfect for this. I often use chow-mein noodles though, or even rice if I don’t have anything else. I My family likes this one…usually. It’s always hit and miss with Cole, but this time he ate most of it. The boys are both crazy about broccoli for some reason, so this dish went over well with them.
