This is one of my Momma's dishes , I have no idea why she called them this.

I have changed the sauce around different than they way mom did her sauce but there good !!!

This is a main dish recipe.

If you like green beans and spaghetti sauce you will love this dish , I've always served it with fried potatoes. A family Favorite !

You can use your own family spaghetti sauce instead of mine.
