Simple Bolognese

Posted on

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.
