First of all, this is not your traditional Bolognese. But, that does not matter because the taste is phenomenal. I have made this pasta in many different ways- you can add some other vegetables, use turkey instead of beef and pork, use linguini instead of spaghetti, use white wine instead of red wine, etc. Just do not omit the wine. If you are not an alcohol drinker, do not worry, you will not get drunk with this meal since the alcohol evaporates slowly while cooking for two hours. The flavor from the wine is fantastic and a must for the Bolognese sauce.
This recipe can feed many. You can also freeze it, and when it's time to reheat I would suggest not using the microwave. Use the stove top instead and add a teaspoon of your favorite Bari Balsamic Vinegar to help bring back the flavor and will taste as if it was just made.
This is one of my favorites things to make- it's easy, versatile and you can add so many fresh ingredients! I love recipes that include vegetables, bright colors and bold flavors. Plus, you'll make this recipe in such a short time! Turns out it looks beautiful and, let me tell you this, the flavor was so refreshing. Every bite it was wonderful. It's the trifecta of cooking for me: it looks appetizing, tastes delicious and provides your healthy portion of vegetables for the day! What else could you need?
Summer time is here and this is one of many pasta salads you can make as a side dish or enjoy by itself. Bring it to the pool party and feel good by impressing your friends with this dose of beauty and health.
Now, in times of social distancing, I still like to cook. And, every now and then, impress myself with my cooking. Until we can all gather together and celebrate life, we can still make this for ourselves. And, if you are anything like me, me and myself are the only party I need when it comes to eating.
