    Used different ingredients. I used tinned chopped tomatoes in place of the tomatoes,quite simply because i think that the tinned ones enhance the sauce! - 29 Mar 2010

    This was lovely,a nice change from your ordinary run of the mill bolognese!The prosciutto added lovely flavour to it!I only let it simmer for 40 mins,i don't think that it has to simmer for 1 hr 50 mins at the risk of it becoming too dry! - 29 Mar 2010

    Altered ingredient amounts. Easy and tasty, will make again!! I used 3 tomatoes instead of two, otherwise followed exactly! The whole family loved it. - 21 Jul 2008
