"I wanted a good meat sauce, but was having trouble finding that one recipe that knocked my socks off, so I altered a few and came up with my own. Of course, it goes well with all types of pasta and in the traditional Spaghetti ala Bolognese. But I also use this as my sauce in lasagna, baked ziti, pizza - you name it. It gives everything that extra oomph!"

I would rate this 6 stars if I could. I made it exactly like the recipe except I used ground turkey instead of beef. When it was finished I took my submersion blender and used it to just make it a little thicker. It was the best bolognese sauce I have ever tasted. 5 STARS FOR VALERIE!
Just so so. Flavor was good, but the recipe was a little more trouble than the finished product ended up. The canned tomatoes cooked down and the remaining peels were an unappealing texture in the sauce.
This was a nice sauce that the whole family enjoyed. We like a meatier sauce so I doubled the meat. Very good recipe that I will keep using.
This sauce is excellent ! I've made it twice and it gets better each time.
OK but it needed something, just not sure what.
This is wonderful sauce! I did use both 1/2 lb ground beef and about 1/2 lb Johnsonville Italian Sausage. I only had non fat milk so I decided to use cream instead of milk and I am glad I did. Very nice, indeed. Thank you Valerie.
100 x better than Chef Johns!
I made this recipe as stated and it tasted so bitter. I then added extra oregano and fresh basil,
