  • The carbs and calorie count are wrong on this - I checked it by hitting the recipe makeover button to see what data was entered: 85 grams of green beans, not 850 grams & 1 can of tomatoes, but what size can? Garlic and ground beef look right. - 3/26/15

  • I've been making a recipe VERY similar to this one for years that I got from a friends mom. We love it! It doesnt seem like much & it's not, but the flavor is good and it fills you up! We make low-fat Bisquick dumplings (recipes on the box) & serve soup over top, YUM! Add 1 can FF Tom soup too!! - 2/1/10
