So delicious and a big hit with the family. The kids even ate the peppers for once! I used Orzo instead of rice and added minced onion and garlic to the celery and carrots. IMO a true Bolognese needs to cook quite a bit longer to get the meat to be super tender and fall apart, so I also added a bit more marinara than the recipe calls for and allowed the sauce to simmer on low for about three hours. I would also say that the wine should be added first and allowed to reduce a bit before adding the marinara. These are just a few things that I picked up from my hubby's Nona (very Italian Grandma :)) but I do think that the added time and ingredients make a difference. I also added Panko and parsley to the parmesean topping. That was my favorite part, cheesy, crunchy and delicious!
