"This sauce is very different than the other bolognese already listed. It takes a little work, but after you make it once or twice it is really easy... and SO GOOD! My dad used to make it for us almost every weekend, and now I make it for my family!" — ALISONA

I have been looking for a quick and delicious Bolognese sauce and this is definately it. I could have ate the whole pot myself.
When I did the recipe I didn't really think about the ratio of nutmeg to basil in the ingedients. But the first bite I took I thought to myself. "Uhhhh, Christmas Bolognese?" I think that it should be 1 1/2 tsp of dried basil and a pinch of nutmeg. I would also suggest using a cheese grater to shred the carrot. Also the recipe needs to be more specific about what type of ham you should use. It says slices so I guess bacon maybe? No, I wouldn't use american bacon for a classic italian pasta sauce. I would used thinly sliced cured italian ham, more commonly referred to as prosciutto.
I give only two stars because they need to tweak the proportions of the recipe and be more specific as to how much and what kind of ham to use.
My family didn't care for the nutmeg flavor.
Too many carrots. Wasn't that good...will try again w/ fewer carrots and no nutmeg.
I didn't like it.
You might as well simply chop up some carrots, boil some pasta, then throw the carrots on top.
This recipe should be called Dad's Carrot Meat Sauce. Yep, doublecheck those ingredients, and then do a double take: There are SEVEN carrots in this recipe.
Four big thumbs-down from the family.
WOW!!!! That was simple, flavorful, and one of the best homemade bolognese sauces I've ever come across! Many thanks for that recipe!
This recipe is really easy to put together and great for family gatherings (one pot of sauce for all!). The lemon zest adds a little zing to the bolognese sauce and the cream just makes it so yummy (I put in two tablespoons of cream).
I searched for the perfect recipe for some time and this is definetly it.
