Recipe of the Week: Weeknight Bolognese Sauce

As I was perusing an old Real Simple magazine on the beach last week, I came across this great recipe for a Weeknight Bolognese sauce. I had the majority of the ingredients already in my cabinet and it seemed simple enough to make. I also noticed it came from Ina Garten, aka Barefoot Contessa, aka my favorite Food Network show, and I wanted to test it out. Her recipes on the show always look so delicious, so I figured, let me take a crack at it.


At first bite, it wasn’t what I expected (although I’m not quite sure what I was expecting, I was just proud I made it without causing any fires).

It was flavorful with a slight bite, which I enjoyed. (I love spicy foods!) Super delicious and easy to make! I served it over fresh cavatelli from Arthur Avenue (courtesy of my father-in-law). My husband loved it and I am glad to have an easy bolognese sauce in my repertoire now!
