Michelle's Meat Sauce:

Step 1:

Brown meat and cook veggies (I chop the mushrooms up with spatula

while they are cooking). Add spices and all other ingredients, tasting as you go.

Cover with tinfoil and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Remove tinfoil, broil for a few minutes, so the cheese can get toasted on top.
