Bolognese, the classic Italian meat sauce, is perfectly suited to the end of summertime. It’s traditionally made with a trio of aromatic vegetables called “soffrito”: onion, celery and carrot (a cool-weather vegetable that begins our transition toward early fall). Sautéed together, they provide an exceptional base of flavor. To brighten our delicious pork bolognese, we’re using juicy cherry tomatoes. And we’re finishing the whole grain linguine in the sauce, then topping the dish with sharp Parmesan and fresh parsley.

Late Summer Pork Bolognese with Whole Grain Linguine & Cherry Tomatoes ingredients
  • 10 Ounces Ground Pork
