    Bolognese Sauce

    Thu Jan 31, 2013 9:55 am Groupie

    Bolognese sauce is an Italian meat-based sauce for pasta which originates from Bologna. A true Bolognese sauce includes a small amount of tomatoes or tomato paste in a rich sauce loaded with meat as well as an assortment of aromatic, flavorful vegetables like celery, onions, and carrots fried in olive oil and butter(soffrito). A true Bolognese sauce takes time to cook down, and it is served on hearty pasta-none of this fru-fru angel hair. You will want linguine, tagliatelle, or fettuccine. Interestingly, Bolognese sauce from Northern Italy tends to be sweeter than Bolognese sauce from Southern Italy-I will leave the argument to you.

    This recipe for "REAL" Italian Bolognese Sauce looks pretty darn good. I would suggest that if you can get your hands on pancetta, use that over the bacon. I would also use 1/2 cup half and half over the milk, but that's a personal preference. I like my Bolognese rich.

    Serve with a red wine of choice, and a warm rustic Italian bread that is torn, not sliced. This serves as a "fork stopper" as well as a flavor "sucker upper" icon_wink.gif

    Looks good, although I would have to sub veggie bacon. Here's two recipes

    I love Bolognese sauce but haven't made it in 20+ years! I saved "REAL" Italian Bolognese Sauce and will get to it sometime this week. Looks totally yummy!
