I was searching for a family-friendly "clean" dinner, and sloppy joe's seemed to be the fix. BUT, to my dismay, every single recipe included sugar as an ingredient. So, I fixed that. And my kids LOVE it! (So does my trainer!!) If sugar is not a concern, then go ahead and use ketchup instead of tomato paste. Especially if you have one and not the other. —Mara
