Here's a very quick and simple sauce for pasta similar to a bolognese but lacking the tomatoes. Serve over whatever shape pasta you like!
Four stars only because this is worth trying. It _is_ simple, obviously, but also very fast. Try extra virgin olive oil or - if you have some - spiced olive oil (i.e. with hot peppers in it for flavour). This was good on fusili but could work on spaghetti too. Added some basil and parsley to the mix, you could add hot pepper flakes for heat. - 24 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
By itself this recipe was very bland. However, after adding quite a bit of Louisiana hot sauce, it tasted delicious. Goes very well with pasta. - 16 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I read other posts and searched out more imput on other ingredients to make less bland. I used 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 tsp dried marjoram, 1/2 tsp fennel seed and grated parmesan on top after complete. Because I added other ingredients to recipe makes a 4 not a 5, but with ingredients the rating is a 5. Good stuff. - 01 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
