Anderson explains that the jarred pizza sauce already contains all the flavors you are hoping to build up in the ragu as it simmers, which makes it the perfect sauce to use when you are in a hurry. She uses a little chicken stock to “loosen” the viscosity of the pizza sauce and adds some cream to balance out the tart flavor. To make her Bolognese feel homemade, Anderson reveals she adds a “pinch” of nutmeg. It comes together so quickly that it might become your new weekday go-to that will impress your family and friends.
When it comes to the noodles you pair this sauce with, you need something hearty. Anderson uses pappardelle, but a traditional tagliatelle, fettuccine, spaghetti, or even penne pasta will work with this rich ragu. Whatever you do, don’t forget the grated parmesan. The cheese will thicken the sauce and add its savory and nutty deliciousness, making this easy rendition taste even better.
