Hearty Meaty Bolognese Pasta Sauce

Category: 
Recipes

This pasta sauce is packed with flavor, serving as a glorious example of cooking with wine.   The mix of beef and pork lightens the meaty taste, allowing the other flavors to come forward into a rich combination unlike most other pasta sauces.

In Italy and Southern France, the Bolognese is as common to pasta restaurants as chili is to American diners.  Most pasta restaurants have a daily pot ready for lunch and dinner time.  Combined with a great red wine, it is hard to go wrong with eating or sharing such a meal.
