Spaghetti bolognese

A classic sauce among pasta sauces. Each Italian mamma has her own unique way of preparing it. Some add red wine, others balsamic vinegar, and others add a pinch of cinnamon. Some will add many different vegetables in the pot with the meat, while others only have carrots with onions and garlic. And you can find various types of meat there as well – from beef to mortadella! There are many variations and inspirations (and stories) for this sauce! In our recipe we use ground beef.
