DELICIOUS! I didn't have ground beef on hand so used 2 large, skinned Sweet Italian sausage links, crumbled. Wow! What a great recipe! Plan to use with Chicken Parmesan tonight and have plenty left over to freeze and use in other dishes as well. Will make a great spaghetti sauce! Thanks, SongBrd12701!
