I can't say that I have ever had the Bolognese Sauce at Olive Garden, but I have had many different other ones. This is really good; my eldest daughter told me it is her favorite sauce I make....sadly, even better than my 4th generation Italian Spaghetti Sauce (Sunday Gravy) passed down from my Great-Great Grandmother Maria Concetta Scalzo who came to the US from Calabria. I think she is wrong by the way :) But all the same, this is a good sauce. I used 1 pound of Italian sausage instead of mixing the two different meats and it turned out good. I kept everything else the same.
Easy and delish recipe%u2026 even with my low fat modifications! I'm on Weight Watchers, so I had to skip the sausage and go with 1 lb of 93% lean ground beef. Didn't have fresh herbs so went with the dry, and I only had a can of heavy pureed tomatoes on hand, which worked out fine. I added some crushed red pepper, since I like a little kick. Tasty, over whole wheat pasta! :) Thanks for the recipe!
Have made this several times now, and the family loved it each time! Will continue to make, thanks!
This is really good! But, I can't tell you if it's the Olive Garden's recipe or not since I haven't eaten there in many years. As a personal preference, I only used 1/2 an onion and diced turkey sausage. I allowed 10 minutes for reducing after adding the wine. I used a 28 oz. can of tomatoes & was really glad I did since the sauce reduces quite a bit during the simmering time. This is a very thick, rich, meaty sauce. I served over angel hair.
