Ragu alla Bolognese is a dish typical of Italy's most similar to spaghetti Bolognese, the kind of food is indeed the pride of the Italians. Although it became popular in the culinary world, you will not find spaghetti Bolognese in this country of pizza origin.

It feels weird when you are in Italy, and none of waitress in the restaurant will serve your request, as reviewed in the tourist sites, KompasTravel, in the previous article, when you order spaghetti Bolognese. While Ragu is the kind of food such as meat sauce usually cooked for hours.

Now, if in front of you presented the Ragu alla Bolognese, this dishes are served with three kinds of pasta, the tagliatelle, tortellini or gnocchi, such as that delivered by a food blogger, Monica Cesarato.

The experience of Antonio Carluccio, the chéf known as an expert in Italian gastronomy, in the sites Telegraph, October 10, 2016, was shocked when he first came to London and visited an Italian restaurant.

"In the restaurant there was spaghetti Bolognese, which in fact does not exist in their home countries. In Italy, there are only tagliatelle bolognese made of tagliatelle and bolognese without any spices."

You will be asked what is tagliatelle? A type of pasta that comes from the region of Emilia-Romagna and Marché, flat ribbon-shaped similar to fettuccine, with a width of about 6.5 mm-10 mm.

Meanwhile, in the making of spaghetti bolognese, the chéfs add spices and seasonings typical of Italy, especially basil. Antonio Carluccio said that when speaking of Italian cuisine is always with herbs and spices, such as oregano, basil, garlic, and parsley. Though it should be.

Once it happened, when the spaghetti Bolognese 'unreasonably treated' with more seasoning creations by the world’s chéfs, especially the British chéf who does not know anything about pasta with bolognese sauce original.

We recommend that you try Ragu alla Bolognese, the original recipe consisted only of beef, bacon, onions, carrots, celery, tomato pasta, white wine, and milk.

And, you know it was only with the onions as a seasoning and tagliatelle pasta.
