A hearty dish of Ragu alla Bolognese, representing traditional Bolognese cuisine.

Ragu alla Bolognese

Ragu is a classic dish in Italy with all kinds of variations – from different meats to different wines – with respect to certain regions! Ragu alla Bolognese specifically comes from the city Bologna and features a white wine meat based sauce, versus a red wine based sauce like Ragu alla Napoletana (from Naples). You may find some recipes that include a cream or milk in their Ragu, however, we choose to omit this due to taste and health factors. The important thing about Ragu is that it is an open ended recipe, meaning you can add and omit things as you like, so try it out a couple times and see which variation you like best!
