Pasta Bolognese

Some days it just has to be pasta – and what sauce usually fits better than a good Bolognese? You can find it in many places all over the world, but a really good Bolognese is rarely there. Sometimes the sauce is too oily, sometimes too watery and sometimes even without tomato flavor. My recipe for Bolognese is fresh, tomato-sweet and spicy and is based on the Italian original.

Have you ever eaten or even prepared an original Italian Bolognese? If so, then you probably know that the right Bolognese should simmer at least 2h, if not longer. I tried the long cooking time in this recipe and can tell you that it is worth it! The long cooking time makes the bolognese sauce super smooth, tender and soft. All the ingredients combine through the long cooking time and out comes an intense, flavorful and round sauce. By the way, did you know that the original Italian recipe includes bacon in addition to ground beef, carrots, celery and tomatoes? Neither did I! Unfortunately, I didn’t have any pancetta on hand for this bolognese, so I left it out of this recipe. If you’re curious, give it a try.

By the way, for my bolognese I used linguine – a slightly thicker spaghetti. The sauce sticks a little better than on thin spaghetti, but if you like it more traditional, of course, you can just go for spaghetti. No matter what type of pasta, this sauce is ultimately the queen of the recipe! As a side dish to this delicious Pasta Bolognese, I can furthermore recommend my simple lettuce with Grandma’s salad dressing. This makes the recipe really round.
