Twisted Sausage Bolognese Sauce

“A twist on the traditional Bolognese sauce (ragù alla bolognese in Italian, also known by its French name sauce bolognaise). Which is a meat-based sauce for pasta originating in Bologna, Italy. Bolognese sauce is sometimes taken to be a tomato sauce, but authentic recipes have only a small amount of tomato concentrate. This recipe uses sausage instead of the beef and crushed tomatoes in place of the paste then simmered down to intensify the flavors. In the sauce are healthy ingredients your picky eaters will never know are there. This freezes well so make the whole recipe and store in small amounts using for topping pasta, pizza dough or to dip bread into it. But you can cut the recipe down if you like. But you will be sorry. ;).”
