This is a really great recipe. I doubled it because we got some extra last minute guests and everyone loved it.

Very good vegetarian pasta. We liked it more than the real thing, even though we are true carnivores. I used 4oz penne per head (two of us) and we ended up having just a little left over. To the vegetables I added 1 oz celery as well, as it usually is part of bolognese that I know. Also, I happened to have some porcini mushroom stock cubes and added one in. Very flavorful and healthy!

Absolutely yummy! I doubled the recipe and used a combination of sherry and marsala wine (which are listed as substitutes for Madiera out on the web). The result was completely fabulous, and yet another perfect recipe for those that go meatless during lent!
