A great recipe and explanation of what a 'soffritto' is. This combination of carrots, celery & onion is also called 'the holy trilogy' because it is used in so many Italian dishes. I like to substitute marscapone cheese for the milk....it's way more decadent.
AUTHENTIC BOLOGNESE SAUCE (Ragù alla Bolognese) - Ragù alla Bolognese is one of the most important recipes of my own city, perhaps the most famous Italian dish in the world. Unfortunately, it is also the most mangling Italian recipe! The preparation of this great recipe is very easy, but needs time, right ingredients and a very good thick-bottomed heavy pot. Take your time and be prepared to taste something different than the ordinary "Bolognese sauce"! - dinner recipes pasta lasagna family
