Author Notes

This is my version of bolognese sauce. It has carrots, mushrooms, and a splash Worcester sauce to liven it up. I use this for my lasagna dish also, My teenagers at home enjoy this delightful sauce with pasta, and even on top of steamed vegetables! Best enjoyed with Parmesan cheese on top, delish! —Saboush
