“The best thing about this recipe is its versatility. You're using jarred sauce as a base, which means you can use whatever type of sauce you want. You can play with this recipe until your heart's content! Whether it's the base sauce or the meat, you can customize it to your taste! I've even started experimenting with adding sliced sausage. Pretty good! Hope you have as much fun!!!”
