Looks and smells great! Haven’t tried it yet, but I have no doubts it’s going to be yumm. Although I fry pancetta first, only then add the vegetables And since I love love love mushrooms, i always add them to my bolognese.

It was delish! 😋I used a Merlot substitute 🍷 for wine and a high quality dry Fettuccini. Also dropped in fresh basil in the last cooking cycle. 🍃 Might try parsley and maybe switch out the celery or add in a mild sweeting ingredient (possibly brown sugar and margarine) to make it more savory. Otherwise it was amongst my other favorite bolognese, especially when you add in the parmesiano regiano 👌🏻🧀🍝

Really good & easy to make. Everyone enjoyed it- followed directions exactly. Only think I might do differently next time is use a beef/veal/pork mixture instead of all beef.
