      Weeknight Bolognese Recipe from Ina Garten aka the Barefoot Contessa....I reduced the salt and wine, added a T of sugar to balance the acidity and served over pappardelle ribbon pasta. Surprisingly scrumptious weekday dinner that is easy to pull together. The San Marzano canned tomatoes and heavy cream (ok to use reduced fat/fat-free) are a must.

      Weeknight Bolognese Recipe by Ina Garten ... made this tonight! I didn't use tomato paste and only used 1/2c red wine (all I had in the fridge LOL). Turned out delicious!

      It's not often that I make a recipe over and over and over again...but I do this one! it really is simple and delicious. The only tweak is I use much less red wine since it does't cook that long. I sub pasta water, chicken or beef stock instead, or extra cream, till i get the right consistency.
