This is a classic, quick and easy pasta dish that I have made forever. I do play with ingredients as far as adding mushrooms, diced tomatoes and grated carrots in addition to switch it up a bit and I may play with seasoning as well (I do add a little curry sometimes!) Make it your own and enjoy!

How to Make American Chop Suey
