Maria's Best Pasta Sauce

Recipe by  

"Add this great tasting meat and tomato sauce to your dinnertime repertoire. Toss it with spaghetti or other pasta, use it in lasagna, or as a base for other dishes such as Shepherd's Pie, Sloppy Joes or Chili. The cream smoothes out the flavour and creates a luscious sauce."
