A dish of udon with bolognese is possibly an atrocity to Italians. They’ll just have to live with it as the end result is delicious and deceptively healthier than pasta. But this is just one meal so we shall not think too much of it. Bleachted noodles, what?
I had made bolognese sauce using NoobCook’s recipe. That means it’s a very rich, tasty sauce involving beef, pork, bacon, root vegetables, wine, milk, tomatoes and herbs. You should try it sometime and you’ll never go back to ready-made tomato sauce.
Except that this recipe will take you about 1.5 hours (if you’re fast and efficient in prepping ingredients) so maybe the ready-made sauces are good if you don’t have the luxury of time.
Then you eat it and you freeze the rest of it in single packs for the single person.
Why udon? Because I have a fresh packet that I had curry plans for. That didn’t happen and neither did a lot of other things in life. So we make do with what we have, what we can.
