5. Once the sauce thickens, season with salt, pepper, and butter to taste.
6. Boil the pasta in a pot full of water, drain, then coat in olive oil (to prevent the noodles from sticking).

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this as soon as I found out that my husband loves meat sauce.

After one bite, he told me that it's the best meat sauce he's ever had and that he'll never be able to eat any other meat sauce!

My kids also love it.
