One cannot talk about Beef Bolognese without talking about Julia Child.
If there’s one word that describes Julia, it is: fearless.
“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” – Julia Child
I love how she wasn’t afraid to make waves and try new things. I love how she was tall and proud. I love how she didn’t hide how smart she was, even though intelligence wasn’t necessarily a quality appreciated in women at that time.
And I love her unapologetic enjoyment of food.
I wish I could have met her before she died. I’m pretty sure we would have been BFFs.
Beef Bolognese is actually not very hard to make. You chop up the ingredients, stick it on the stove to cook for the afternoon, and enjoy the lovely way your house smells until it’s time for supper.
It doesn’t look the prettiest in the pot. But you’ll be sneaking spoonfuls all day.
When the flavors are married, it’s time to eat. Spoon the sauce over pasta, and grates some cheese on top. I used Asiago, because that’s what I had in my fridge. I love those new little Sargento Tastings, so you don’t have to buy an entire huge hunk of cheese.
Sargento isn’t sponsor or anything…I just love their product.
This is one of those recipes that is even better the next day. I made a huge pot and nibbled at it the entire week.
Here’s the printable recipe. It’s a version of a recipe I found on My Recipes. Hope you enjoy it!
