Bolognese Meat Sauce 意式肉醬

This classic Italian Bolognese meat sauce (Bolognese all Ragu), from the Emilia Romaga, which Bologna is the capital. The sauce is great with taglietelle or pappardelle pasta, which the pasta is wide enough to hold the sauce. Italian do have some rules for different sauce with different pasta. This also can be the sauce for classic lasanga. Simple but delicious.

Of course there are many different recipes for the meat sauce, but I just do the simple one with simple ingredients. I use mix beef and pork meat together, different portion of fats in protien can make the sauce better. Slowly cook and let the flavour come out deeply. 

I love to make a large pot of sauce, then store it in different containers and freeze it. So when I don’t have time to cook, I just take one box of sauce, reheat it and serve with pasta. It is still very delicious and comforting.

這個波隆拿肉醬Ragu alla Bolognes 就是我們經常吃的意大利肉醬意粉的醬汁。來自意大利波隆拿城市而得名。這個肉醬可配各款意粉,特別是闊身如tagliette, fettucine寬條麵。因意粉較平較闊,可以沾滿更多醬汁。意大利人不會用來配長意粉的,因為太幼。這個肉醬又可做意式肉醬千層麵Lasanga,香濃美味。把多餘的醬汁放入冰箱存放,每次再煮熱醬汁,配意大利麵,超方便,簡單又美味!
