Comments:  When wanted a recipe for a healthy Sloppy Joes and ran across one in one of my Better Homes & Gardens Cookbooks.  I made a couple of changes.  I made my own tomato sauce by running a can of tomatoes in sauce through the blender.  I used garlic instead of garlic salt and added the ketchup.  For my buns I used Bagel Thins with Everything.  This added to the flavor but also kept the dish healthy.  Taste wise - this is delicious!  I never once noticed the elimination of salt.
