Spicy Tomato Meat Sauce for Spaghetti from Playboy Magazine

I got this many years ago from a Playboy Magazine, lol. It's not a real thick sauce, you could add some tomato paste if you want it thicker. We like it just the way it is. I serve it on vermicelli, my personal preference, with garlic bread and a salad.
