Fettuccine Bolognese

This is my third dish from the "Pasta Passport" recipes I developed for Parents Magazine -- and it's also one of my favorites! I have such vivid memories of my mother making a similar dish when I was a kid, pouring the warm sauce over spaghetti and topping it with grated parmesan cheese. Her sauce would simmer for hours, filling our house with the smell of fresh herbs, garlic and tomatoes. My brother and I mispronounced it "Pa-Scetti" and my kids call it as "bo-lo-nase". Whatever you decide to call it, you'll be happy when the entire family is calling it "delicious"!

    Thanks

      I want to use this opportunity I have to say a big thanks to Dr Great for getting back my ex husband. I'm Linda Gibson from USA, after 7 years of marriage my husband left me for another woman I did whatever I could to get him back but all I did was in vain I was sad, but I didn't lose hope of getting him back because I had faith in God. So I search online on how to get my husband back, and I came across a post of Dr Great of how he helped a lady to get back her ex, I contacted him and told him the pain I was going through, he told me what to do and I did it, then he casted a love spell for me 48 hours later my husband called me and told me he is sorry for what he did and that he misses me very much, later that day he came back home and beg for my forgiveness, since then our love grew stronger. For the marvelous things Dr Great has done for me it would be unfair for me not to let the whole world know that such a powerful spell caster do live. If you want to get back your ex fast email Dr Great at [email protected] or [email protected] or add him up on WhatsApp +2348118829899 Blog: lindagibson90.blogspot.com

    love the parm in this...gives it added depth since turkey not quite as flavorful as beef!

      When I use turkey instead of beef I always use worcestershire sauce on it to give it a 'beefy' flavor. I found a vegan brand that doesn't use HFCS and it's great!

    I just made this yesterday and it is delicious! I added and extra can of tomatoes because I wanted it to be more saucy. I have a hard time getting my 21 month old son to eat meat so this was perfect. I used it to make pizza and he gobbled it up. Thanks for another great recipe!!

    I agree with Jeannette. I like it more saucy so I added another can of diced tomatoes. I have made this soo many times. It is a staple in my house and I freeze cubes of it so that I can warm it up whenever my little ones are hungry. yummmmmm
