Bison Bolognese

Submitted by: FATJOSH

Introduction

This is a good and easy pasta sauce. You can cook it for 20 to 60 minutes, the longer the better. This goes GREAT with spaghetti squash. This is a good and easy pasta sauce. You can cook it for 20 to 60 minutes, the longer the better. This goes GREAT with spaghetti squash.

    I've been making this dish before I started this program. Was so surprised to find it here and to see the nutritional info. This is great and I've been making it with ground beef or ground turkey. Really unique! Even better as leftovers! - 1/21/09

    I loved this recipe. Mine simmered for a full hour, and it had a deep, rich, delicious taste. Fabulous!

    My only issue is that I think this really only makes 4 portions - - not 6. Unless you are really light eater. - 11/4/08

    Yeah, you're probably right. I like my pasta or spaghetti squash light on sauce so it would probably make 4 portions if you like a higher sauce to pasta ratio.

    I love bison. That said, you could easily sub ground turkey or beef for that matter. I double up on the tomatoes and red wine and hot peppers but that's just my taste. Highly recommend bison if you can find it. - 11/3/08

  • My husband and I changed from beef to bison over a year ago due to the nutrition value. This recipe is wonderful! I fixed the recipe as written and even my husband loved it. Thank you and we will be fixing this again. - 2/14/12

  • SO delicious!
    I added the garlic and onions with the beef (no bison), added mushrooms, added chicken stock instead of red wine and a bit more dried italian herbs. Plus, I didn't have canned tomatoes on hand so I used tomato puree and fresh diced tomatoes, and added a little water. - 3/25/11
