1Lightly sauté veggies and spices in pan with minimal amt. of olive oil.
2Combine sauté mix, browned protein, and other ingredients in crock pot or large soup kettle.
3I turn it on low with an occasional stir during the course of my day or crock pot on low 4-8 hrs.
4Serve over any type of prepared pasta, Freezes well in smaller quantities so you just use amount desired for a lot of meals if not hosting a group of 8-12 in one sitting. Sdd a salad and garlic bread - done.
