    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    This is a streamlined version of the classic Bolognese meat sauce that is fairly low fat. The penne pasta is perfect for trapping the chunky sauce, but you can substitute other sturdy pasta shapes, such as rigatoni or ziti. Serve with a salad, crusty garlic bread and a good Italian red wine for a great meal!

      This was very easy and VERY good. I was surprised how much flavor it had, because it called for so few spices. I will definitely make this again.
