Spaghetti Bolognese for Two
Long simmering is out of the question when making dinner for two on a rushed weeknight. We searched for a way to get deep flavor—fast.
Why This Recipe Works
Authentic Bolognese sauce is slow-simmered for hours. The wait is worth it when you want to impress a table full of guests, but for our double serving size we wanted something quicker. We boosted the flavor fast by adding hearty pancetta, dried porcini mushrooms, and an anchovy to the sauce. We also saved time and cleanup by simmering the pasta directly in the sauce—no boiling water needed.
