Nigel Slater's Spaghetti Bolognese // Used bacon instead of pancetta. Cut the simmer by at least an hour and it was still really good. Red wine flavor was really bold - but may not have been had I followed the recommended simmering times.
Penne and Smoked Sausage...I like the idea of mixing a few "french onions" into the casserole. It will give it a bit of crunch I hope. The flvours of smoked sausage and onions sounds too yummy. For those days when you have company in the summer and it's not so hot outside. Win-win!!!
