    little bit plain but quite good
    This is very close to the traditional recipe, but I don‘t quite understand why you left out all the juicy stuff. The Original adds a dry white wine and beef stock. After nearly 3 Hours of cooking you will need that extra water in the sauce. And as the wine is key to the taste of the beef, you should not forget this :) The original recipe of the Accademia Italiana Della Cucina by the way uses fresh tagliatelle instead of pasta secca. Try that or use the Sauce for a Lasagne al forno. It‘s a different world :) You should also add half a glass of Mill at the end to nutralize the acid of the tomatoes.

    I'd recommend a little more seasoning, but otherwise it was really good.

    Perfect. I skipped the oregano and the carrots and used bouillon cubes instead of salt and garlic . A dash of people and Italian seasoning. And it was perfect

    Worst recipe I’ve ever used for bolognese. Adding the meat, tomatoes and water at the same time turns this into a stew that has to be cooked down for hours. I would NOT recommend this.
