Spaghetti alla bolognese

1 February 2017


I told you about it… here is a great comfort food dish that will be perfect for this weekend: Spaghetti alla Bolognese. The secret of the sauce: let it simmer for 1 hour to bring out all the juices! This recipe is in fact the basis that I use to make my meat lasagna (I found the recipe on the marmiton website). I just add in extra a few pieces of bacon to give a salty taste. Just add to the above a bit of parmesan cheese and enjoy…
