Week 5: Spaghetti Bolognase (Jamie Oliver)


imageI royally messed up this dish, so I’m not sure if my review is accurate to the recipe that can be found HERE. Firstly, MAKE SURE you allocated a lot of time to bake this dish. I did not and my prep time ended up being crazy. This dish takes an hour in the oven so make sure you’ve budgeted for this. I also mixed the pasta right into the baked dish which the recipe did not say to do and in retrospect I think it’s better if you add the plain pasta to your plate and then add the sauce on top.

This recipe called for red wine and I definitely added a little (or a lot) extra which gave this recipe a nice strong flavour. It was good and had a really homey feel after baking in the oven, but not the best bolognase I’ve ever eaten. I’d rank this pasta a 6.5/1o, just based on the long prep time and the difficulty of the recipe.
