What were once barely acceptable meals became more than palatable; good food became simply elegant, be it a common peasant stew or a duck confit.

I was always curious why neither of her sauce recipes (this one, and the other well known one with just butter, onion and crushed tomatoes)included any herbs. I did a mashup and used this bolognese in your Christmas Lasagna instead of the store-bought marinara sauce. As in a GOOD way. Change ). When we finally got our kitchen, we decided that it would be one of our first big Italian meals we made in the new place. Thanks! ;) (please see post for garlic answer).
