The recipe below as written for 4 meals could easily be made into 5 meals for 6 people as the serving size is quite large. The sauce was yummy. My kids wanted theirs on rice. So we just saved our buns. Tomorrow night we are making spaghetti… so I thought I could make some garlic butter and then spread onto the open buns and make some yummy garlic bread with it.
