Beef Bolognese Pasta

Everyone’s got that one special ingredient that makes the Bolognese they grew up with the best. Ours has got to be the carrots and half-half minced pork and beef.
Cooked in the beautiful and functional cookware by Smeg, the Bolognese sauce gets to simmer and the flavours really meld together. This hack has revolutionised how we make pasta sauces! Smeg’s Casserole dish makes cooking on stove to oven a breeze, with no extra dishes to wash. Toss pasta of your choice and this sauce together in its Frypan for the perfect sauce-to-pasta ratio.
BTW, Smeg is launching their first cookware series! Check out their pop up at Takashimaya, B1, from 12 – 31 Oct 2021 or here.
