Pictures do NOT do this dish justice! Although it looks like traditional spaghetti sauce, bolognese sauce tastes totally different, and I must say, everyone loved it! There's a little bit of everything in this dish... wine, milk, red pepper, parsley and nutmeg to name a few.
The simple ingredients were inexpensive and most of them, I already had on hand. Do use the fresh oregano over the dried. I definitely think that had an impact on the taste!
The recipe calls for chopped pancetta. I tried to chop it up with a knife... not so much. The food processor is definitely the way to go!
Start by cooking down all the vegetables for about 15 minutes, then add the rest of the ingredients. Talk about an easy dinner!
This made enough to serve four adults and two kids with a little left over. It was so flavorful, I couldn't believe it!

You can even make this sauce ahead and freeze it... perfect for those busy evenings!
