Making it simple ~ Spaghetti Bolognese

Who doesn't like Spaghetti Bolognese, right? As a kid, I loved to watch the Prince Spaghetti commercials staged in Italy or maybe in an Italian neighborhood here in the States. The mama would yell out the upstairs kitchen window, "Anthony, its Prince Spaghetti Day"... and a dark haired little boy would appear running through the streets to get home for dinner.

Believe me, it takes no time at all to make a really great Bolognese. Just saute chopped onion in olive oil until brown and then add ground pork or veal about 1 pound, breaking it up as you stir. Sprinkle generously some dried herb seasonings: rosemary, mint and oregano and garlic powder, then let your sauce simmer for 6-8 min on med heat. In the meantime, boil water for your spaghetti pasta.

Back to the sauce, you want to stir into your meat and onion 1 large can of crushed tomatoes (Red Gold). Let this simmer on low heat for 20 min.

Once, the pasta is tender, drain and turn onto a large low lipped serving dish. Next, pour on the Bolognese and top with grated Parmesan.
