Tagliatelle Bolognese

The luscious flavor of our Mutti® Bolognese is best paired with a wide pasta, such as tagliatelle or pappardelle, to create the right balance of flavor and texture.

Made with Double concentrated tomato paste

When you need a strong and intense taste of tomato, tomato paste is your choice. It works together superbly with our other products to intensify the flavor and texture of the tomato.

  3. Stir in thyme, bay leaves, tomato paste and finely chopped tomatoes. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer about 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide Bolognese as desired into freezable portions in airtight storage containers
