Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Recipe from Today’s Show: Spaghetti Bolognese

Posted by

TODAY on MHTV: Spaghetti Bolognese is one of my all-time favorite pasta dishes but it normally takes a lot of time to prepare, about three hours. One night I  decided to change it up and created this shorter version that only takes ONE hour. My Bolognese starts with savory pancetta and ground beef seared in wine and tomatoes, then I take it to the next level and add a touch of cream. Since this is a heavy dish, I like to serve it with a light escarole side salad drizzled with Parmesan dressing. More from the show.

  • This looks so good! I'm trying it tonight. :)

  • In this recipe you add the red pepper flakes after the tomatoes and most other red sauces you cook the red pepper flakes with vegetables. What is the difference in the flavor or why is it different in this recipe?

  • The Bolognese recipe looks fantastic. Can't wait to make it. I also loved all of the serving bowls used in this episode. Can you tell me the brand. Am in desparate need of updated my dishware. Thanks.

I will admit that I started making it with much fear as I detest traditional "spaghetti with meat sauce", but this is NOT like anything I've had before! SO much flavor!! My 4 year old begged for THIRDS!!! Even my 10 month old kept leaning forward in her high chair for more! LOL!! Definitely keeper here in our home!! Thank you SO much!!
