This sauce is so flavorful and easy to make that you will never want to eat store bought sauce again. It is also very versatile. You can use ground turkey, chicken, pork… Any kind of meat you prefer. You can also throw in any of your favorite fresh vegetables. Since I made it the first time, I have yet to make it exactly the same way twice. Every version of it has been simply delicious.
