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!

    As someone who had both of his grandparents born in Naples, Italy, I can tell you not self respecting Italian would put many of these ingredients in a Bolognese sauce. Catsup? Oregano and not basil? I have less of a problem with the bacon but it still does not belong. I would not make this on a bet. Richie Fittipaldi

    You may want to check the spelling. Mince should be meat or ground beef, I believe.

    I always add 2 carrots to my sauce. It enhances the flavors in the sauce. I always blend them with some of the sauce. My grandkids love my sauce so it seals the deal for me.

    Always need grams converted to pounds and ounces. Why are some of these measurements in cups and tablespoons, familiar to Americans?

    So good! Loved how easy it was. Didn't have the tomato soup so used a can of tomato sauce and a little Frank's hot sauce. I used ketchup. I also had a bunch of mushroom stems left from stuffed mushrooms, so I chopped those up with the onion in a food processor. Bet I could add carrots too for more veggies next time.
