    Brandess's Note:

    If you like real, down home, Italian cooking -- then you'll love this recipe. It's a traditional pasta dish, just like grandma used to make. The Bolognese sauce can be made and frozen for use throughout the month. Feel free to double this recipe as written, but reduce the wine to 3 cups total.

      I thought this was a pretty good dish. I halved the recipe, but still felt I needed a full 29 ounce can of tomatoes to make the dish have enough tomato flavour. I've never had carrots in a pasta sauce before and it made for a nice change. Made for Australia/New Zealand swap April '08.

      This is a great recipe. I have been making it the same way for years, we serve it with a scoop of Ricotta cheese on top. SOOO GOOD!
