I dreamed a dream of Chamonix.
I slacked on cooking this week in a big way. I made egg roll bowls once and ate leftovers for a few meals, but bought a few lunches, too.
However, I had a couple of friends over for dinner one night and wanted to make something a little different than my usual fare.
Probably because I was thinking about my time in Chamonix, I was craving a bolognese sauce.
There was an Italian restaurant I went to for dinner one night where I had pasta in a bolognese that made me swoon. Remembering it made me want to try to make my own.
Oh, man. This recipe from Skinnytaste for bolognese sauce was super easy and amazingly delicious.
I used a pound of pork and a pound of ground beef instead of two pounds of ground beef, but otherwise, I actually followed a recipe for once.
I’m glad I did. Damn, was it good.
Next time, though (and there will DEFINITELY be a next time), I’ll add a ton more salt, and some garlic, too, because I love both, and really, why isn’t there any garlic in this recipe? I don’t get it.
Whether you decide to do the same or not is, obviously, up to you, but I recommend it.
The sauce was great on spaghetti squash with parmesan and fresh mozzarella, and I’m sure would be fantastic on steamed veggies, any kind of pasta, or even just some rice.
Highly recommend making this recipe. I doubt you’ll regret it.
Neapolis Restaurant is located at 79 Galerie Alpina, 74400 Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France. They do a marvelous bolognese sauce there.
