American Chop Suey Recipe
Hmm… Ill just have to try this.. but I may need to rename it, or there may be hostility when dinner is served. Being from New England (born MA, raised NH, moved to CA when 14), I must say your recipe definitely looks alot different than the one mom makes (and thus I now cook).

My recipe involves the onion, celery, green pepper, macaroni, Parmesan cheese, hamburger only and then two – three cans of hunts tomato sauce (one being veggie based, and the other generally traditional). (so we cheat on the sauce).

I love me some american chop suey (in fact, its whats for dinner tonight) and its one of those rare meals that I will actually eat leftovers!! But definitely curious to try it with sausage and the red pepper.
