I learned this recipe from my Italian house mate during my collage days, and he once also mentioned that- out of all the Spaghetti Bolognese Recipes this is actually the healthiest –  as it does not use any bacon oil during preparation.

This dish is one of my staples, and i truly enjoy making it as much as i enjoy eating it.
