WHAT IS BOLOGNESE

Bolognese Sauce is an rich “meat tomato sauce” that was perfected originally by the Italians.

It is made with onions, garlic, beef (hamburger) or pork, pureed tomatoes, red wine or beef broth, parmesan cheese and whole milk which makes for an delicious Bolognese sauce. 

I omitted the celery and carrots. Which is used in Authentic Bolognese, however something I do not prefer in mine.

WHAT IS BOLOGNESE 

Some recipes call for the addition of chopped carrots or celery. Personally I do not use it! And is always served over pasta.

HOW LONG WILL BOLOGNESE LAST IN THE FRIDGE

If it is stored in an air tight container up to 3 days.

There is no secrets ingredients of any kind to make this sauce, it just takes a little time to make as you are to simmer it on the stovetop for one hour.

BOLOGONESE WHICH MEAT

The Italians use a mixture of beef, pork and lamb.

You can use either or just Ground Hamburger like I have here. 

WHY IS BOLOGNESE CALLED BOLOGNESE 

Bolognese is actually Ragu and means any meat sauce cooked over low heat for hours on the stovetop. Ragu has many ingredients in it and varies from region to region in Italy.
