Meaty Spaghetti Sauce

I have a tomato sauce that I often use for pizza, spaghetti, or even as a dip sauce for hors d'oeuvres. I was searching for a version that was more of a meat sauce, and I ran across this one from Paula Deen.

We had this great sauce over multi-colored pasta, topped with shaved Parmesan. No one complained about it, that's for sure!
