A delicious, fresh and quick meat sauce. Despite other reviews, I found it was perfectly seasoned using the proportions listed above (and I like my food well-seasoned, almost bordering on salty). It also freezes beautifully! Prepare as directed and store flat in freezer bags. Thaw in the refrigerator the night before and all you have to do is boil water for pasta!
I made this last night for my husband and I with some changes. I love that it's a good starting point to work from. I added cumin, chili flakes, and Italian seasonings. Also, I used fresh tomatoes and tomato paste and then added some of the water used to boil the pasta with olive oil. Then at the end I was still a little bored with it and added about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese and a dollop of butter. Delicious!
sometimes I add fresh mushrooms.
Really liked this recipe, but I did need to add more salt and pepper and cook it longer to give it time for the meat to flavor the sauce. Would definitely make it again, probably adding more garlic.
