This WIll make enough for A LOT of pasta sauce! You can freeze the leftovers and they'll last for weeks (at least)!
Making the pasta at the same time will be tricky so you'll have to play around with the timing.
Try to have the water for the pasta boiling WHEN you're adding the meat
After you add the meat to the POT you can add the PASTA to another pot of boiling water
Pasta usually takes 8 to 10 minutes so when the pasta's done you can drain the pasta and serve the sauce almost the same time!
This much sauce will stay hot for a long time after you cook it, especially if you leave the lid on, so you don't have to feel rushed to get the pasta out right away.
It might take a few times to get everything to come out together, but don't get discouraged! Make notes on what works and what doesn't, find out what works best for you!
