From kitchen to table in

  1. Spread margarine on sliced French bread, wrap in foil and place in a 400 degree oven.
  2. Place ground beef in a skillet and brown over medium heat, stirring often.
  3. Meanwhile, start water boiling in a large saucepan for pasta.
  4. Drain the fat off the ground beef and return to skillet.
  5. Add tomato sauce to ground beef and
    continue cooking on a medium-low setting.
  6. Add Italian dressing, vinegar, lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, Italian seasonings, and pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer. Stir occasionally.
