Homemade bolognese sauce that’s filling and full of flavor.
One of our favorite dinners is bolognese. I love it for a Sunday supper, but you can count on us having it at least once a week, regardless of the night. It’s so simple to make, but tastes like a lot of effort went into it. I often make it when I’m entertaining because it’s easy to make in abundance & looks as amazing as it tastes. It’s always a crowd pleaser among both children & adults.
A lot of bolognese recipes call for carrots & celery. While I enjoy that with a hint of cream, in the winter I prefer this richer, meatier sauce & it’s a lot less effort. I think you’ll enjoy it, too!
