Our Family Bolognese Sauce
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
We always have a stash of my son's favorite bolognese sauce in the fridge and freezer to be heated up at any time. Can leave in sealed containers in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Can store in sealed containers in the freezer for a month. Note: When we freeze it, always let the sauce cool before putting in containers and leave some room at the top of the container because sauce expands when it freezes.
