Hunt's Fettucini Bolognese

Recipe by ElizabethKnicely

A quick skillet version - beef and mushrooms simmered with tomatoes, then tossed with pasta.

This made for a hearty dinner, and was fairly quick and easy to put together. While the description refers to beef, the use of sausage meat in the recipe is a nice twist on a typical Bolognese sauce. I found that w hen I added the mushrooms and tomato paste, the pan was too dry, so I added about 1/2 cup of dry red wine to deglaze and give some moisture. The directions didn't indicate when to add the sausage back in to the pan, so I added them with the diced tomatoes (which I assumed was one 15-oz. can). Instead of stirring in my pasta, I tossed them together in a serving bowl. I had some nice homemade fettucine that my 89-year-old (!) aunt made for me, and this sauce went perfectly with it. I think this recipe would also work well with beef, if that's your preference. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
