Here is a very basic vegetarian meal which is inexpensive and tasty! Basic "Old World" style Ragu sauce, with ordinary noodles (we used Ronzoni "Spaghetti-8" last time), and add your favorite breakfast veggie sausage on the side or atop like meatballs. We used "Sausage Patties" from Morningstar Farms and they were delicious, cooked in a pan with some unsalted butter. My youngest daughter smeared it all over her face and loved it! My oldest daughter slurped down noodle-by-noodle!
