How To Make Bolognese Sauce – Delicious Spaghetti Dinner



If you love the freshly cooked sauce full of great tasting meat, served on the top your favorite pasta, you will like the idea of making your homemade bolognese sauce to share with your family tonight.

Following the traditional recipe, the bolognese sauce should be cooked using a ground beef. I cook my own variation of the sauce. I use a ground veal meat to cook the bolognese sauce. As a result of using a veal meat, the sauce is tasting much smoother.

I always use a freshly ground veal, instead of the ready to use, packaged in the food store one.  I cook the ground veal with a pureed plum tomatoes. In the summer, juicy, ripe tomatoes can substitute for the tomato puree. Peel and cut roughly the fresh tomatoes before adding them to the ground meat.

Simmering slowly, adding the ingredients gradually,  one by one and seasoning slightly, is the secret of making your perfect, fresh and aromatic bolognese sauce.

Serve your bolognese sauce on the top of your favorite pasta. For me, the combination of bolognese sauce and freshly cooked spaghetti or spaghettini /the thinner ones/, sprinkled with a freshly grated parmesan cheese makes dinner perfect anytime.

I hope you’ll get inspired by my bolognese sauce recipe. I’d be more than happy if you  leave me your comments below. :)
