Notes

While pork is a common ingredient in bolognese, the sauce is also unusually rich in milk. A classic bolognese sauce will contain carrot, celery, and tomato. It should simmer until thick and be seasoned. If you don't have carrots, use celery and onion instead. Then, add milk and cook until the meat is tender. It's a delicious meal!
