Summary: Mafalde Bolognese Sauce is a hearty, rich , flavorful and filling meat sauce. This is comfort food to me. This dish is even better the next day.


  • 1 lb of Mafalde Pasta. (or your choice of pasta)
  • ½ lb beef
  • ½ lb veal
  • ½ lb sausage, no casing.
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • about 5 cloves of sliced garlic
  • ¼ cup heavy cream- (optional)
  • 2 large cans of whole tomato’s , Crushed tomatoes works fine too. So your preference.
  • Salt, pepper, and if you like crushed red chili’s. Adjust to your liken.
  • Grated cheese ( optional) to your liking.
