I used beef and ground pork. I also made a mistake in that I combined the veggies into the meat then stirred in the tomato paste and wine/beef broth. Maybe that was part of the problem but this didn't really strike hubby and I as anything particularly outstanding. I'm pretty sure I have another CL Bolognese recipe that I prefer. Doubt I'll be making this one again.
While this smelled really good while it was cooking, the relatively bland flavor was disappointing. I should have realized when I saw that there were virtually no seasonings in the recipe. The second day, there is even less flavor. I won't be making this again.
Certainly worthy of company or a special occasion. The flavor is excellent. I also suggest finishing cooking the pasta in the sauce which allows the pasta to absorb the flavor of the delicious sauce. Leftovers were fought over! I did make a small change to the recipe by using 1 lb of ground turkey in lieu of the ground sirloin and 1 pound of meatloaf mix instead of the bison which I could not find. The added meat increased the number of servings which was perfect because I was hosting a dinner party. Ladies and gents, try this recipe! You won't regret it!
Really liked this. Suggest adding the pasta to the sauce and letting it heat. The pasta absorbed the flavors and it was not runny at all. Serving size is large
I usually make a different recipe for bolognese but I have to say this one was way better! Lots of flavor. I did find that I had way more sauce then I needed for 8 oz of pasta but I don't mind having leftovers for another day.
This tasted like heaven to me. It might be worth noting that we don't have pasta that often, so that was a bonus. Also after waiting for it for an hour with those lovely smells likely made it taste even better (the wine while waiting likely helped too). There were a lot of contextual elements that made it exceptional, but I really enjoyed it, and The Luv didn't even put parmesan on it (regardless of recipe, pasta always gets cheese if it is set in front of The Luv). That means a winner in my book.
