Tailgating favorite Sloppy Joe sandwiches


Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for at least 10 minutes until flavors are melded and mixture is heated through.

Good To Hear From You

Hi Pat: After reading the paper today, I realized that I missed your wedding article. I don’t know how that happened because I always read your column and I love it. I would love the recipe for apple cake with cream cheese frosting. I am very curious about your pig in a blanket to roast over a campfire. I am hoping that you can email these two recipes to me.

Thanks, Adele

P.S. Your bowtie recipe with golden raisins and spinach is a favorite in my home. I took your advice and added more spinach. I also crumble about two links of Italian sausage and brown it instead of the prosciutto. One of my friends likes to serve it as a cold pasta salad.

Dear Adele, I have sent you copies of both columns you missed.

The “Farfalle with raisins and Spinach” recipe you mention is a favorite with many readers and requested often. It is one of my fave’s too.
