This isn’t fancy, but it is a great weeknight meal. I had some tomato juice leftover from making Italian Pot Roast earlier this week and I thought this would be a good way to use it up. My mom made a dish very similar to this when I was growing up. I changed the recipe to suit our tastes (added the Italian Seasoning, basil and red pepper flakes) and it turned out great. I will definitely be making this again – probably after we eat pot roast again.
