Cook's Tips

For a meatless option, replace ground beef with 1 cup drained, rinsed cannellini beans. If frozen Italian-style vegetables are not available, look for a vegetable blend containing green beans, cauliflower and squash.

Lean beef? As grass fed animal fats have artery protective Omega3, CLA and LCFA, this is misininfo.

This recipe is very similar to the variation on the side of the Hunt's Garlic and Herb sauce for Pasta e Fagiolo. A very good recipe and very frugal.

EXCELLENT!! I substituted lean ground turkey and used sodium free chicken broth instead of water and bouillon, there was still plenty of sodium from tomatoes. My husband has decided to eat healthier yeah! This is something everyone should try. And sooo quick and easy

With a few substitutions, this worked out PERFECTLY! I substituted ground turkey for the lean beef, used fresh zucchini, cauliflower, and green beans (because I had them readily available); equal amounts of homemade chicken stock for the water and bouillon; and 1 large garlic clove, minced for the powdered stuff.
