Delicious and extremely easy! I did not have any crescent rolls, so used tater tots instead, and I didn't have italian sausage, so used the bulk pork breakfast sausage, and it was really good! Other than that, I made the recipe as given. Will definitely make it again!! Thanks Michele!

I didn't have the exact ingredients available; but this is a great base recipe. Here is what I did: Browned the following: 12oz. Hot Italian Sausage (bulk) 8oz. Ground Beef 1 Orange Bell Pepper - chopped 1/2 large onion diced 1 heaping tbsp minced garlic I didn't have any frozen mixed veggies so I added the following: 5oz fresh sliced carrot 5oz fresh chopped celery 6oz frozen corn (thawed) 1 Fresh Jalapeno (chopped) 4 Roma Tomatos (chopped) Increased Oregano to 1/2 tsp and Black Pepper to 1/2 tsp I also didn't have a full 16 ounces for Spaghetti sauce, So I added 13oz. Spaghetti sauce with about 3 ounces of water. I topped this with a can of Immaculate Baking crescent rolls; since these are dairy free (and wonderful!). This came out delicious! Thank you Michelle!

Made this and maybe it was the frozen vegetables that were in it, but it was only ok. Next time, I think I will use some fresh vegetables and maybe some biscuits instead of the crescent rolls. It was just missing something.
