Posh Spaghetti Bolognese

Posh Spaghetti Bolognese

As I am going to cook spaghetti bolognese today I just realised that my recipe in my old blog is still missing from this new blog. So I have decided it’s time I update it here in this new blog.

My boy asked for his comfort food and I made the bolognese sauce today so he has a few meals as his tapau.

There are many ways of making a bolognese sauce and almost every household has their own secret recipes. This humble origin from the Italy city of Bologna is now a household staple here in England. The French add in bouquet garni, some uses a touch of cream and in UK children from baby to the elderly love spaghetti bolognese. It is fed to baby like rice porridge in Malaysia. Of course the Italian purist would say we have corrupted their dish.

This take about 30 minutes of cooking, an hour of simmering and after that it is a very flexible and versatile sauce with many usage.
