Oh So Good Bolognese Sauce

Sherry Peyton


Nothing better than a great Ragu sauce. This is straight out of Joy of Cooking except for the garlic I add because I can't imagine Italian without garlic! This is such a rich sauce that a little goes a long way. Pair with a great salad and some good bread and you have a feast! If you like this recipe, visit my site @ mybestcookbook.wordpress.com
