Barefoot Contessa’s Weeknight Bolognese

Weeknight Bolognese

You know, I can honestly say that I’ve never met a Bolognese that I didn’t love.  It’s kind of like brownies and fudge, even a bad one is better than none at all. 

With this Weeknight Bolognese from the ever fabulous, Barefoot Contessa, I officially welcome fall.  All it takes are a few cool mornings, and I am all about soups and stews and pot roasts and pastas.  I don’t know the effect this is going to have on my dreaded Android calorie app on my phone, but I don’t think a big bowl of Bolognese is going to be as accommodating as a big bowl of summer veggies mixed in a salad.  But then again, that’s what those baggy, comfy sweaters are for, right?

So this warm bowl of comforting goodness was just the introduction to fall that I needed.  It was wonderful.  Of course it was, it’s from Ina.  And Ina never disappoints.  Ever.  I found it in Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That?: Fabulous Recipes & Easy Tips (Fabulous Recipes and Easy Tips)by Ina Garten.  But when I was googling it, to see if I could find it somewhere so I didn’t have to re-type it (since I didn’t change anything), I found it on her site.  So, go check out Weeknight Bolognese and welcome fall with a big bowl of pasta.

    You’re right Pam, Ina never disappoints and this looks fabulous. Now you’ve got me craving a bill bowl of bolognese too!

    So, you skip a Ring-Ding or Twinkie here or there, and you’ve taken care of the Bolognese calorie count. Simple. And it looks good, too!

    I always look forward to cool weather foods. When the temps plunged last weekend, I made a big pot of soup and a batch of biscuits.

    I never met a bowl of pasta I didn’t like and “The Contessa” is my favorite Food Network star.
