What are you doing on this cold and dreary Saturday? You are going to make this!!! Seriously this pasta bolognese is insanely delicious!! And while it takes about 3 hours to cook, I spent maybe a total of 40 mins actively cooking (true story: I went to the hair dresser while the meat sauce simmered for 2 hours - my mom was at the house and only had to occasionally stir it).
I grew up in a household where my mother used to doctor up some canned tomato sauce (Prego you hold a special place in my heart). Basically she would add some garlic, oregano, chopped onion and green pepper to the meat while it was browning and then add the tomato sauce and simmer for 30 mins or so. I loved how saucy the meat was mixed with the pasta.
This homemade bolognese sauce had the sauciness to it but is sooooo much better. It’s like crack meat sauce - you just can’t get enough.
