Pasta with Bolognese Sauce ~ an Italian Delicacy

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

I'm presenting an Italian delicacy : Pasta with Bolognese Sauce today.....This sauce with made with minced beef traditionally and also bacon are added, but I made with minced chicken according to our taste and added ingredients according to their availability in my place. Also the pastas are used in this sauce are spaghetti, tagliatelle and penne. But I think, any sorts of pastas go well with this sauce. It's very tasty, protein-rich, so healthy and filling for any meal.
