About this recipe: A traditional style very rich Italian ragu. My flatmate loves it and she's from Milan, so I'm fairly sure it's good! To be entirely traditional you should leave out the green pepper and use either garlic or onion, and not both. You could also use a mixture of beef and pork mince.
I don't like celery and substituted with mushrooms and only had about 150ml wine but used that anyway. Found one ctn of passata and one tin of tomatoes enough. A really rich, tomatoey, tasty bolognese. Just the job. - 09 Aug 2011

Added a large spoonful of Marmite, to balance the tomatoes with some beefy flavours. Needs a good hour and half simmering though - and more than 30 mins for the wine to evaporate. But it's worth the wait - and even better reheated with loads of parmesan and black pepper. DEFINITELY one to make again! - 25 Oct 2009
