Nattu’s Bolognese Sauce


This is my favourite way of cooking the classic Italian recipe. It is also my daughter’s favourite. It takes time to cook a good bolognese sauce. Make sure the onion, carrot and celery is finely chopped. Then cook  until caramelised and golden. After that let the meat sauce simmer on low heat for a good hour or so for the flavours to develop.

The rich, thick sauce is perfect to serve with your desired pasta, such as spaghetti, linguine, or tagliatelle.  You can use this sauce for lasagne too. You can double the quantities and then freeze half to use it later. I always keep a few bags in the freezer.
