This a great weeknight meal that I've been making for years and my family just loves it. The sauce for this recipe is homemade and very easy to do. Just serve it with garlic toast and a salad and you have a fabulous dinner that's quick and easy, too. I've also made this recipe using ground turkey instead of ground beef and it's just as wonderful. Hope y'all enjoy!

If sauce seems too thick, you may add a little more tomato sauce.
