Ragù Bolognese Emilia Romagna sauce

Ragù Bolognese is a famous typical Emilia Romagna sauce, made with minced meat, interpreted in different ways especially for the choice of pasta…

This is my personal battle, La Pasta is a really important choice and the perfect combination for Ragù Bolognese are Tagliatelle or Orecchiette, but not Spaghetti PLEASE.

No-one  in Italy eat spaghetti with ragù bolognese!!!
