Move along. Nothing to see here.
This is just an ordinary dish of pasta. Nothing fancy in this sauce.
Jake asked me what was for dinner tonight. I told him spaghetti Bolognese. He said, have we had that before? That Italian word threw him. I informed him that it’s just meat sauce.
Actually, this is one of those standard 20 meals that my mom made throughout my childhood. Of course in today’s version I didn’t have to sit at the table forever and pick out all the onions. Disclosure: I’m all for that style of parenting.
Anyway, back to the sauce. I’m pretty sure my mother’s version didn’t have celery in it. Again, not criticizing, just saying.
I love this whole stir-the-cheese-right-into-the-pot thing going on here. As a kid we used American cheese singles and it still sounds good to me.
Is it wrong that I used a Ritz cracker to do my taste test? If so, it’s probably a big deal that I actually did it twice so I could get the picture.
This recipe is from Giada and Everyday Italian and it doesn’t disappoint.
Eat Well and Savor.
