Not bad, but I think next time I would add some crushed tomatoes as well. This was lacking in the sauce department as is. Read More

I'm certain the quantity of salt called for in the recipe should be 1 tsp instead of 1 Tbsp. The sauce is inedible if the recipe is followed as printed. We had to dilute it to the consistency of a thin soup to make it tolerable. Read More

Very good bolognese, I think I like it more than beef bolognese to be completely honest. I did take a massive poo on the john afterward, but it's okay because it tasted good on the way in, and felt great on the way out 9/10 rating final rating. Read More

Not very flavorful, and I object to using a tablespoon of salt in anything. I did follow the recipe as written, though. If I make this again, I would try portabella mushrooms, tomato paste ( 1/2 tablespoon to start) and Italian seasoning. I also would specifically use San Marzano tomatoes, and lengthen the summer time to allow the tomatoes to break down a bit. Read More
