RE: another ground meat alternative

I use Yves Veggie Ground Round in all sorts of things.  It is   
particularly good in veggie chili, pasta sauces and shepards pie - all   
though I've used it in all sorts of pasta dishes as well as burritos etc.   
 You can pretty much use it wherever you might have used ground beef.  I   
buy it when its on sale and freeze it until I need it.  Its very easy to   
use - just toss it into whatever you're cooking.

Subject: another ground meat alternative

I haven't been following the digests as well as I'd like, so I
apologize if I missed a post on this previously, but I haven't seen
the Yves "ground beef" product mentioned (fatfree & vegetarian) yet.

I just tried it for the first time last night (the Italian flavor)...
just crumbled it into some NF spaghetti sauce & microwaved it.  It was
incredibly like a meat sauce!  I think a package was less than $4,
and says it's equivalent to 1 1/2 pounds of *cooked* ground meat.

I *love* the gimme lean sausage flavor sliced & grilled for breakfast,
but the Yves is much better (IMHO) in a pasta sauce.

If someone has tried this product and have other ways you've had success
cooking it, let me know.  (I made a mistake and ordered a whole case
instead of a single from my coop :-).
