Quick and Easy Companies Coming Spaghetti Sauce

Diane Hopson Smith


Ever have a day when you had that someone extra coming for lunch or dinner and you didn't pull anything out of the freezer or even plan for a meal? That was me yesterday.

I didn't have any ground beef in the freezer but I did have a lb of ground chicken. Yes, I sure did cook it frozen. Add a little water to the pot and break it up as it cooks...works every time! I had a new 1-lb roll of Tennessee Pride sausage in the fridge. Everything else I needed was in the pantry.

Hope you enjoy!
