The Actual Olive Garden Bolognese Sauce Recipe (Spaghetti Sauce)

The Actual Olive Garden Bolognese Sauce Recipe (Spaghetti Sauce) created by Cook4_6

This is the actual Olive Garden bolognese (spaghetti sauce) recipe that I got from the Olive Garden website. Please don't leave a feedback saying how this recipe, "Is soooo much better than Olive Garden's", or how it is, "Close to Olive Garden's, but no cigar". It IS Olive Garden's recipe. Now we just have to figure out how they make their breadsticks! I like to throw the cooked veggies in the blender so my son doesn't realize that they're in there! ;)

    When it says to deglaze the pan with wine, do I dump everything in the pan (veggies and meat) into another bowl to do this then add it back when the wine has reduced? or do I had the wine to the meat/veggie mixture and let it cook down? Sorry I am a newbie at this :)
  2. Larry K.
    When it says 1 celery is that one stick off the stalk? Same with carrot? Do you use ground Italian sausage or the linked skinned and chopped finely?

    This is my first time attempting to make a home made spaghetti sauce for my wife. What is meant by deglazing the pan with wine and how long should I let it reduce? Thank you, Tom F.
