Pappardelle with Bolognese Sauce


Bolognese is a kind of ragu sauce made with white wine and milk. The low and slow cooking method results in a tender, rich, flavorful meat sauce. Due to the weight of this pasta sauce it pairs best with a wide noodle that can withstand the weight of the meat and vegetables. Make this sauce in a large batch on the weekend and enjoy throughout your week.
