    chia's Note:

    this is one of our favorite meat sauces although it is a bit of work. this works well with campanelle or penne to catch the sauce

      A very good and authentic bolognese. It is amazing how many bolognese recipes are out there without the milk. That is not bolognese....that is meat sauce. This has the milk and it makes such a difference! I added a pinch of sugar to cut the acidity of the wine and the tomato. I also added a 14oz can of petite diced tomatoes, for a little chunkiness. The pancetta makes the dish.

      This is a great recipe. We also believe that bolognese needs dairy and are glad that we included this. The one addition we made was to add about a half cup of parmesan during the last 30 minutes of simmering. Based upon the other reviews, we increased the pancetta and used a little bit of extra basil from the garden. I'd love to tell you how this held up in the freezer, but it doesn't look like it'll make it there. Thanks, Chia.
