  1. I made my first Bolognese not long ago. I really loved it (the husband, not so much – but then again it was easier to get my girls to eat things when they were little than it is to get him to eat anything. The recipe I used had it paired with Parmesan polenta and can say that it was the perfect combination. The sauce you made here is meatless, so this would work well for Meatless Monday (minus the beef ravioli, of course).

  2. This sounds so good and so flavorful. This will make a great family meal. Thank you for sharing this great recipe
