This bolognese is considered the gold standard. It should be cooked without changing a thing to truly appreciate it. I have tried dozens of bolognese recipies over the years but always come back to this one. Take my advice. Make it as written at least one before modifying if you must.
It was good....not great. The concern for me, is nutrition value, specifically calories, fat, and carbs. I think they are inaccurately low here given that lean ground beef is used. If I were to make this again, I'd use a very lean ground turkey. However....I also think you can make a really decadent Bolognese and the nutrition value would be near the actual value of this recipe so.......I'll likely splurge on taste next time. Here is a closer look at the true nutrition value, broken down by ingredient https://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calories.asp?recipe=102922
Really enjoyed this, although quite time consuming. I do find it hard to believe that a half cup serving is only a little over 100 calories since 8 oz of ground sirloin is much more than that. Either way, enjoyed it for dinner and have a few containers put away in the freezer for another dinner or two!
Wow, this sauce is amazing. I never thought I'd like a sweeter tasting sauce, but it's so rich I can't stop eating it! I used one red onion with the yellow and added minced garlic to the veggies. Used one pound turkey with the two pounds beef to cut some of the fat, seasoned all meat with italian seasoning. I used italian stewed tomatoes instead of the plain ones, and added 28oz more. It was meaty enough to go great over spaghetti squash. This recipe makes the low-carb diet seem like a cinch! Can't wait to eat it again.
I thought this was very good and filling. Froze wonderful as well.
