READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Tisme

I usualy make my Bolognese the traditional way, but tried this version a few nights ago, and the family just loved it. This is a quick and easy version and I might start making this a little more often now!

Tisme you are right this is an easy way to make Bolognese. I LOVED it and the ease of which to make it. Products are usually on hand for me so makes it so much easier as well. I followed your directions to a T using a Nero D'Avola (Sicilian wine) of course had to have a wine to drink with dinner so the sauce, DH, and I shared a bottle. I love the flavors. I used the tomatoe paste as opposed to the ketchup. All in all I will make this again as it comes to gether so quickly.n This is a great sauce to have for company as well because it is not the normal pasta sauce and makes the dinner that much more special for friends and family. Served with a romaine salad, crusty garlic bread, and shaved cheese wedges on top.
