Quick Meat Sauce

I like to make large batches of spaghetti sauce so I always have some in the freezer ready to thaw for a busy school night dinner. This quick meat sauce lives up to it’s name. It goes together quickly and is tasty as well. I prefer to make marinara for my batch cooking days, but occasionally I will mix it up and make this meat sauce to make my meat loving husband happy. Though to be honest I do not use ground beef, I use ground turkey for all ground beef recipes. Over the years I have lost my taste for ground beef unless it is cook as a burger over open flame. I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe for quick meat sauce.
