Please don’t ask me for spaghetti bolognese!
The Bolognese sauce – or rather, ragù alla bolognese – is a typical sauce of the city of Bologna, made with tomato sauce and minced meat, and to say that it is cooked slowly would be an euphemism: we’re talking about hours and hours and hours. No one from Bologna, no one from Emilia, no Italian would eat the ragù with any type of pasta that was not tagliatelle or pappardelle or cappelletti. At the most, short pasta tubes or strozzapreti. But do me a favour, with spaghetti?
Spaghetti are perfect with tomato, alla carbonare….but no with ragù.
My grandma ragù recipe is:
Simple, easy, fast, and u can freeze it!
So why go in a pizzeria and ask for spaghetti bolognese? 🙂
Tagliatelle è meglio!
