    Ben Ross's Note:

    This is an old traditional Italian dish that is huge in Australia. Very yummy, and everything but the noodles can freeze well.

      I am in the process of tweeking Bolognese dishes and finding the right preparation. While cooking this meal tonight, I fried the garlic and onion and then added Pancetta to the dish. Then added the meat until browned, followed by a can of San Marzano tomatoes, the tomato paste and the herbs. Delicious! I made the mistake of adding dry white wine to this dish as it brought out the bacon flavor. I then added some milk which dampened the enhanced bacon. Quite frankly, the Ragu was gorgeous without extra additions. Will keep this recipe in my handbook. Thank you.
