Personal Notes:
Look, you can dump a few jars of spaghetti sauce into a pot with a bag of frozen meatballs and pull off a decent dinner. But, occasionally, you might want to make a proper meat sauce. And, this will do it! This is the recipe that Nona used, and it never fails.

Just, be careful not to burn the sauce, keep the temp fairly low after you add the tomato sauce.
