I love pasta not only because most of the recipes I make with it are very easy but because the variations I can try are endless. This spaghetti Bolognese was done in just about 20 minutes, the perfect quick dinner for any week night meal.
I am not a big meat consumer but once in a while, since my family craves it, I try to incorporate it with pasta. I feel this is one of the best ways to do this. When ever I make sauces when making pasta I always make sure I use top quality ingredients.
This time around I used Mutti Parma Tomato sauce, “Passata” and finely chopped tomatoes, “Polpa”. Their products are top notch and their taste is superb. Their ingredient lists doesn’t include any type of artificial flavors or fillers. Just natural ingredients, which is right up my alley. In addition:
- Mutti is Italy’s #1 canned tomato and all Mutti tomatoes are grown in Italy from the best producers/farmers.
- Tomatoes are canned fresh to capture the most authentic color, flavor and aroma.
This spaghetti Bolognese recipe can also be done with turkey or chicken if you like. If you don’t like beef or prefer poultry instead you can make it that it that way. I have made it with poultry in the past and it works really well.
Another thing I have done before while making the same recipe is make a larger quantity for the sauce. Then what I do is freeze some batches so that I can have the same meal later on. This way the only thing I have to do is boil the pasta and have a meal done in about 10 minutes. Super convenient!
Well I hope you like this spaghetti Bolognese. Super easy to make, delicious and comforting.
