Fast & Easy Dinner: Fettucine with Bolognese Sauce

Fast & Easy Dinner: Fettucine with Bolognese Sauce

Bolognese is a classic, kid-friendly crowd pleaser. Who could resist a bowl of piping hot pasta coated in a chunky, flavorful meat and tomato sauce? It's also great because you throw all the ingredients into a large pot and forget about them until the sauce is done. This recipe calls for fettuccine, but you could serve the fragrant bolognese over any pasta you have on hand. Serve with a glass of Italian red wine and let the weekend begin! Sound scrumptious? Wait until you see the recipe,

Had it tonight. It was great if you like a meat sauce over any pasta. The only thing, it was a little salty. Since it has the pancetta, I would not add the salt next time. All 10 members of my family will have this again!
