Bolognese Sauce

I have this spaghetti sauce recipe that I've developed over the years. I'm actually quite proud of it and it's been a family fav. A couple months back, I happened upon Pastor Ryan's Bolognese Sauce over on Pioneer Woman's blog. This sauce is so divine (pardon my little pun), that I think I am officially retiring my sauce in exchange for his.

It has a deep rich color and meaty texture that make this sauce absolutely delicious.  The secrets are shaved carrots to help fill out the texture and a cup of milk which acts as a tenderizor to the meat.  (This photo reminds me that I need a new dutch oven pot.  I'm using an old Revereware pot that I picked up at an auction years ago.  It's very thin and doesn't distribute the heat very well.  So, I'm adding this to my list of kitchen stuff I want...along with the food processor.  Santa...are you listening?)

If you are looking for a hearty winter fare, please try this sauce.  You will love it.

And on a completely different subject, do we have any Project Runway fans out there?  Who do you think is going to win this season?  Althea, Irina or Carol Hannah?  (Yes, Irina is a #itch...but she does have talent.)  I'm curious what you think.

  1. Big Project Runway fan here, but haven't seen all the episodes for this season because of the change to Lifetime channel. Thursday nights, right? If I remember correctly, Pastor Ryan is also quite divine.
