We added Italian pork sausage to classic sloppy joes for a grown up taste that kids will love too. Replace the store-bought marinara with Make-Ahead Roasted Roma Tomato Sauce for deeper tomato flavor.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Any type of tomato pasta sauce can be substituted for the marinara sauce.
  • tip 2
    Chopping the vegetables in a food processor can save lots of time and make the vegetable pieces small enough that picky eaters may not even notice them.
