This sauce has become a favorite for my family! I like to cook the onion,celery,garlic & peppers down in olive oil, & then blend them in the food processer to lessen the chunks. We like it meaty & add hot italian sausages for more flavor. This recipe always gets positive reviews from guests.



this is a good recipe, but needs to be made a day or two ahead of time to allow the flavors to reach their peak.



Thought I'd try a new bolognese sauce and this just doesn't compare to my recipe. I give it 3* for ease, but to add a *wow* flavor, try this. After saute veggies, mix in veal/beef/pork (1/2 pound each). Add wine & stir until almost evaporated. You need the wine because red wine releases the last bit of sweetness in the tomato. Then add 1/2C whole milk & stir until evaporated. Next, tomato, etc. and simmer away. If you have a parmesan rind, toss this in when simmering. Always better the next day, but also great in lasagna.
