On the menu for tonight in our Jamie’s Food Revolution cook-along:
- Bolognese Sauce, pg. 165
- Tossed Salad with Jam Jar Yogurt Dressing, pg. 107
I discovered bolognese sauce this past summer. My soon to be sister-in-law was visiting from the UK and she prepared it for us. It was fabulous! We really like spaghetti in our house, but I don’t like that there is so little protein in a typical tomato sauce. So bolognese was the perfect solution. Lots of protein and lots of taste! I have been looking forward to trying Jamie Oliver’s bolognese. It was good. It was not great. I think the biggest problem was the celery. It overpowered the other flavors. I would suggest leaving it out altogether! My sister-in-laws’ recipe on the other hand is really wonderful! It has red wine and a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg which are surprising but so tasty. Try either one or both and let us know what you think!
The other recipe we tried tonight was the Jam Jar Yogurt Dressing on our tossed salad. It was good as well. I am not really fond of yogurt dressing, but I would guess that if you generally like them, this one would make you happy.
