    This is a traditional ragu bolognese sauce. Garlic and herbs aren't traditionally used and only a little tomato paste or a couple of tomatoes are usually added. Enjoy

      Thank you, thank you, Terese!! I have been looking for this recipe for years. When I was in Ireland back in 1984, I began to get homesick for American food. In a little pub in Dublin, I spotted "spaghetti" on the menu. It was tasty, but different, and when I read your recipe, I thought "maybe" and it WAS! The only thing I changed was to use lean ground pork in place of the veal, and it was very hard to leave garlic out, but I did it! I simmered this for almost 5 hours and it was so tasty, and just like I remembered from Ireland - thanks, again!
