We were looking for an easy meal afterreturning from a long weekend in Bandon. And I didn’t want to go to the grocery store, so pasta with bolognese sauce it was. Typically bolognese sauce simmers for several hours, but I found a recipe in Cooks Illustrated last year that cuts the time way back (to about 30 minutes) and achieves similar results. It makes a pretty big batch, so we freeze the leftovers for lasagna. We used some of our home canned tomatoes and ground beef from Deck Family Farm to make it a local meal.
