Homemade Meat Sauce

If you’ve been reading my blog by now you may know how much I LOVE Italian dishes. With that being said, you also may know that I often make my favorite Italian dishes into healthy versions that I love to dig into, weekly. This meat sauce is delicious and always a hit; it can go with a ton of things! I often make a big batch to have for the week, and it always all goes!

    Hi just a quick question, how many servings is this recipe. I am always looking to make stuff in bulk as i don’t have time during the week to really cook and this looks amazing. Thank you for all your awesome recipes. It makes my life so much easier.

  • I LOVE this sauce! Whenever I make it, people think I actually have culinary skills 😉 I add chopped green pepper right after the meat for a bit of extra veggies!
