Have to say the thyme is way too powerful here, and this recipe is not at all similar to the one listed on food network for Batali.
very nice sauce. easy enough to make; used all organic ingredients, but had to sub bacon for the pancetta which i know makes a difference in this sauce as pancetta gives it a better taste. i split the amount of the chicken broth and did half of it broth and the other half white wine. thanks for sharing.
Hooray for you Yooper for posting and allowing me enjoy this luscious little Bolognese yet once again! I found this recipe a number of years ago and misplaced it when I moved last year. On a whim, I searched “Mario Batali” and was so pleased when your recipe popped up! If you can manage to find ground veal, it does make a difference. Fresh thyme is of utmost importance…I have made it with dried thyme and it lacks miserably. Kudos Yooper!
I made a few changes to the recipe but it was great. I cut the amount of carrots used in half and added celery. I also used 2 large cans of tomatoes so there was more of a sauce. And instead of chicken broth I added white wine.
