Classic Bolognese Sauce

Classic Bolognese Sauce is a delicious Italian slowly cooked meat and tomato sauce that is very flavorful, very rich and makes a comforting dish perfect for lunch or dinner.

It is not a quick recipe, the secret of this delightful sauce consists in even the fact that it needs to be cooked for about 2 hours to reach to its fullest richness and intense flavor.

Usually this thick Classic Bolognese Sauce must not be associated with spaghetti but rather with tagliatelle or  fettuccine. Enjoy !
