    My whole family loved this!
    I used Italian sausage instead of hamburger and I used bone broth (bc of the extra protein) instead of just regular broth

      So happy you like it 🙂 Bone broth sounds like a great option!

    I am intrigued with your recipe. I would like to try it but I try to stick with recipes that provide the nutritional content data. However, I may give it a try. But I would appreciate and use much more if you could provide that data for your users! Thank you!

  4. Renae

    Are the cans of tomato sauce 8 ounce or 15 ounce?

    • Corrie CooksCorrie Cooks

      Great question! 15 oz. standard cans same as the diced tomatoes.

  5. Marie

    Can this be made in a Crock Pot?

    • Corrie CooksCorrie Cooks

      Yes, it can! It will take much longer though, about 6-8 hours. And you'd probably want to add the noddles towards the end of that so they won't overcook.
