If you were to ask me what my all time favorite pasta sauce is, I would answer, without hesitation, that it is THIS Bolognese sauce. I posted that recipe a few years ago, and things haven’t changed. It’s still my all time favorite.
That said, it’s a time-consuming sauce. One that’s meant for a day when I have time to spend in the kitchen. On days when I don’t have time to spend in the kitchen, this lightened up, chicken-based Bolognese sauce is a fantastic alternative.

They usually end up enjoying it, even though they’ll swear they don’t the next time I put it on their plates…out of stubbornness. Why do kids do that? It’s like the whole baby-fussing-because-she-doesn’t-want-to-nap thing. I don’t get it. I would KILL for a nap most days. Why fight it? Same with dinner. If you like it, admit it!
