Pasta Bolognese (1321)
A rich meaty Bolognese made using a traditional Italian sofrito (270g)
Soffrito is the Italian word for “fried slowly” and perfectly describes the process of gently cooking the holy trinity of onion, carrot and celery in oil to soften them and release their flavour. This provides an aromatic flavour base for this Bolognese sauce and most Italian soups & stews. The rich ragu is made using British & Irish minced beef, pork, smoked bacon and then cooked with tomatoes , red wine & oregano and topped with Fusilli free-range egg pasta Our Serving Suggestion A simple addition of roasted vine ripened tomatoes drizzled with olive oil or spectacular with Balsamic-laced roasted vegetables. If serious comfort is the order of the day then try adding a garlic butter ciabatta. Scatter with torn basil leaves, shower with extra Parmesan and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil to pimp up the flavour of this pasta Bolognese Our Drinks Pairing Meat (Bolognese, spaghetti with meatballs, sausage-based sauces) is a logical partner for Sicilian and Puglian reds (especially Primitivo), Sangiovese, Rosso di Montalcino and inexpensive Barbera's Zinfandel is good too
