  1. On pasta with just some cheese I thought it was just ok. I didn't use a jar sauce but a homemade version of pasta sauce found on this website. I used canned mincemeat. Thank you kane for your recipe.
  2. This is similar to what I do - Instead of mincemeat I use turkey or ground beef. To add more flavor i add garlic diced tomatos can of mushrooms and a shake of red pepper flakes. Fast way to jazz up a basic jar of sauce. Top with parmesan!
