My little sister is an amazing cook. No matter how many or how little ingredients you have in the kitchen, she will be able to whip something together. She probably gets this from our dad. So, when I asked her what her favorite recipe was and why, she had an immediate response.
"American Chop Suey. It reminds me of home," Victoria Doucette said. "I would have this for my birthday dinner every year when I was a little girl. Dad taught me how to make it before I left for college so that I could make it myself."
Italian is one of Victoria's favorite foods, and she not only enjoys eating it, but cooking it as well.
"If I feel ambitious, I can make the tomato sauce from scratch instead of from a can, which makes it even better. There's a lot of room for creativity when choosing spices and other veggies to add in."
As with most recipes, you can modify this one to your own likings.
