Mamma mia! The Italians got it right with this expression. It perfectly describes the feelings of satisfaction, happiness and excitement. When it comes to pasta, no one beats the Italians. Each region of the country has their staple dish and one of the most well-known is pasta Bolognese. Bolognese or ragu Bolognese, as it’s also known, has its origin in the city of Bologna. It’s a simple and delicious sauce that uses ground beef, tomatoes and onions as the main ingredients. To give this recipe a touch of originality, I decided to apply some culinary savvy and combined the same ingredients, but presented in the form of a casserole. Mamma mia, how delicious!
