Bolognese is a fancy meat sauce, and my dad LOVES meat sauce. He grew up with it instead of the more traditional spaghetti and meatballs. I found out about bolognese one day flipping through a cook book, and I decided to make it for his birthday dinner one year. It is by far his favorite meal now.
I put a spin on the traditional bolognese and used chorizo sausage and bacon instead of ground pork and pancetta. The chorizo adds a deeper, spicier flavor and the bacon, well is bacon. What could be better?
To start this recipe sizzle up some chopped bacon. Ah! Enjoy that fried bacon smell. Then add in the rest of the meat to brown. Add in your chopped vegetables.
Once the vegetable are soft, sprinkle the herbs in...
Add the tomato ?paste, wine and broth and cook for an hour and a half. Finish off this glorious sauce with 1/4 cup heavy cream. Yum.
WARNING: You will fall in love, and meat sauce will never be the same.
