Super veggified meat sauce base

Submitted by: ANGELA3511

Introduction

This is a very versatile meat sauce base! Tons of veggies provide extra nutrition, and lean ground beef adds flavor and protein. You can double or triple it and then use it as a base to make a number of different meals.

Add marinara sauce to serve over pasta.

To turn into a semi-chili, add a can of beans, another can of diced tomatoes.

To add a Tex-Mex flavor, add a can of beans and a can of Mexicorn. Serve over Spanish-style brown rice, in taco shells, over tortilla chips or as a quesadilla (add shredded cheese and flour tortillas).
