Classic Bolognese

There are thousands of bolognese recipe’s all over the world, I made my own version. and I am happy to share to you guys that these classic bolognese was  with me on every restaurant that I have worked with. Again, from Philippines to New Zealand, I bring this recipe with me. The difference among other bolognese sauce are the bunches of vegetable I include on the recipe such as mushrooms, celery, carrots, onions and more……Did you know that veggies I used in this bolognese makes my sauce really healthy, this are mushrooms which can be an ideal low energy diet for diabetics. They have no fats, no cholesterol, very low carbohydrates, high proteins, vitamins and minerals, a lot of water and fiber. Celery – is always been assiociated with lowering hi blood pressures, because of its’ natural organic sodium(salt).

Ingredients: good for 4-6 persons

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp garlic (crushed)

  • 2 tbsp corn flour dissolve in 1/2 cup water
  • 500 gm spaghetti noodles (cooked)

You may also need:

  • Add tomato sauce & paste & water. cook for another 5 minutes. add cornstarch mix and remove from heat.

  1. I got my recipe for Bolognese from Joy of Cooking. Now my Cook’s Illustrated says that their research suggests that dairy was never in the original. And their recipe calls for 4 meats, one of which is chicken livers. So I’m rethinking the entire dish. Thanks for publishing this. It looks closer to what is “original” than mine!

    • Hi sherry, I agree that dairy shouldn’t be used in bolognese, otherwise it will be similar to lasagna or other baked spaghetti stuff….usually bolognese was revised by chef’s of each establishment so they can have their own identities. some chefs used bolognese as their main tomato base sauce for several dishes like a base for making a lasagna, or as toppings for your favorite hotdogs sandwich and even dipping sauce baked wedges and chips……..thanks for your time sherry!!
