sloppy joes anyone?

My husband has been feeling nostalgic and wants to serve our son a sloppy joe. His mom always made them from scratch and he has fond menories of eating them as a child. Sloppy joes and veal parmesan were his first choice requests for birthday dinners.

Now, this was not something that was served in my home as kid. I didn't eat one until boarding school and never ate one again. I assume it came from can it was that bad. A quick poll around the office was "just use manwich". I would prefer not to go the can route because if its like canned soups it will have too much sodium and other crap.

So does anyone have a good recipe, preferably quick one too being that I am a WOHM?? TIA!!
