For my family, a hearty pasta usually means two things…. it’s Sunday and we are craving comfort food. There is just nothing better than Sunday pasta, period! Growing up in an Italian American family, no Sunday transpired without the customary red sauce with heaping amounts of braciola and meatballs bubbling on the stove for hours. But never did we have Bolognese. That was reserved for restaurants. Same idea I suppose but very different in flavor and texture and technique. I have quite a love for Bolognese and had a serious craving last week. I consulted two similar recipes and used them as my guidepost for the method — BA’s Best Bolognese and Marcella Hazan’s recipe from the NY Times — while inserting some of my own intuition. Super delicious and even better the next day!
