Making Mushroom Pepper Beef Bolognese

Mushroom Pepper Beef Bolognese on plate
This is a joint recipe from my mother-in-law and myself. When I visit her in England, I always prefer to eat her foods over going out. Thankfully, we make a great team in the kitchen! We made this bolognese after going hiking and it really hit the spot. Even though it's super meaty, it's got loads of veggies and herbs, so it's quite refreshing.

  9. Add pasta sauce and mix well. Raise heat and bring until it's bubbling. Every bolognese batch is different, so if it's a bit dry, you can add a touch of water or wine at this point. We didn't need to.
