This dish has evolved over the years! When I first made it in the 70's I served it over NOODLES. Then one nite I found I had no noodles so I served it over RICE!! Then one nite I walked into the kitchen and my husband and his friend were eating it like a SLOPPY JOE!!!! So as you can see this is a VERY versatile dish! That you can do almost ANYTHING you want with it, thus the name! (don't forget about the potato!!!! Hope you all try and enjoy!
