Spagetti Bolognese

This version is a more authentic Ragu Bolognese.
The extra time is definitely worth it, you will feel it in the good tastes.
The longer you let it cook the softer your chuck roll/ribroast will be.

It also tastes very good the day after when the flavors have settled properly.
Therefore, it is advisable to make a double portion so you can heat this later in the week.

Here you will find the recipe for a quick veal broth

Wine for Spaghetti Bolognese, here I would go for a fruity and relatively strong red wine.
