“Magic” Meat Sauce
I like to cook meals that do double duty…from this one sauce (which is awesome as is), I am going to post 4 additional recipes.It is one of my favorite time and money saving recipes.When I make the basic sauce I make multiple batches at once, it freezes beautifully, taste even better the second day, and makes it super easy to get dinner on the table multiple other nights all from one afternoon of cooking.
PLEASE NOTE: THE "MAGIC" MEAT SAUCE IS GF. AS OF THIS POST THE ONLY OTHER RECIPE THAT IS GF IS THE BOLOGNAISE SAUCE. AS TIME ALLOWS I WILL TRANSFORM THE OTHER RECIPES FOR YOU DINING PLEASURE.
