I found this recipe on several years ago and it has become one of my family's favorite (and I have a VERY PICKY family!). Not to mention, it is SUPER EASY and makes tons of leftovers!

This recipe was very easy and the flavor was excellent. My kids didn't really like the texture of the bacon since I followed the instructions for cooking it until it "renders some fat". Next time I will let it crisp a bit before continuing to step 3.

FANTISTIC! And just as delicious re-heated. So it's fantastic for dinner and the leftovers are fantastic to send off with my husband for lunch. I use Olive Oil instead of butter, but that's just the Italian in me coming out, I barely use butter at all in my cooking. Seriously though, my husband is from England and Pasta Bolognese is a staple in the English diet and he says that this is BY FAR the best "SpagBol" he has EVER had. Compliments!!!
