Italian Style Sloppy Joes

Italian Style Sloppy Joes

What’s for dinner? How about delicious Italian Style Sloppy Joes? It is a melt in your mouth, an irresistible sandwich that my family devoured it without talking or complaining. All you could hear was “mmm… nom… Mmm”.

I added corn and peas in the meat mixture and it was totally my kind of Sloppy Joes. I have tough judges in my house, so if they say it was good, that means it was really good.

Recipe Notes

Corn and Peas are optionally added, but it’s worth it. You can also add (drained) canned corn and peas. For less fat and/or calories you can use ground chicken or turkey. If you have leftover pasta or rice, this is perfect to top it with.
