Parmesan Pasta with Meat Sauce

This is a great, easy, satisfying recipe from my mother-in-law. My husband has been requesting this meal for a couple of months now so I was thrilled when I called his mom for the recipe and found out I had all the ingredients on hand! The only exception was the penne pasta, but I substituted thin spaghetti and all was well.
