spaghetti with meat sauce

Recipe to make an easy meat sauce that is quick for when you don’t have the time to make a 100% homemade sauce.

I’ve never found a store bought meat sauce that I really liked. Seriously they say “meat flavored” and there isn’t much meat.

Here’s how you can turn a jar of store bought pasta sauce into a good meat sauce you’ll enjoy by adding meat (go figure!) and some spices.

Great for making spaghetti, lasagna, baked ziti, or whatever you want.

 

Yum
