This special bolognese is wonderful to top any kind of pasta, not just the traditional spaghetti. The Worcestershire sauce and the harissa give it unique tangy spicy flavor, and the mascarpone gives an incredibly creamy turn to the sauce.

I have never tasted a Bolognese sauce before restaurant or otherwise. This was extremely fast to make and I followed the recipe and it's entirety. I chose to actually use the harissa because I know it involves a lot more ingredients then just cayenne pepper. Perfect simple and fast! Read More

Good quick easy recipe for bolognese. I have had better but was short on time and had a craving recently so tried this and was satisfied. Used veal instead of beef and had no harissa on hand so substituted with cayenne. Good flavor would def make again in a pinch. Mascarpone is a must in this one! Read More
