The secret of true Bolognese sauce is long and slow cooking. The real Bolognese sauce, the official recipe for which was deposited in 1982 at the Chamber of Commerce of Bologna, requires hours of cooking.
Check during cooking from time to time to make sure that the sauce does not dry out too much.
Best bolognaise I have ever tasted. I did have to add more water though as it was drying out during the 3 hours.
