The meat sauce was so flavorful and made for a fun evening enjoying a delicious meal!

Delicious. I added in two of my own touches. The meat was half beef and half pork, and I put in a can of stewed tomatoes. I'm loving it. Thanks.

AMAZING! I like my food on the salty side so I addd a bit more of that and the red pepper but it was absolutely perfect

Best meat sauce ever!!! My family can't get enough and the salt frying of the meat - I use ground chicken or turkey instead of beef - is excellent. Simple, well seasoned with such flavor. Thank you!
