mushroom spaghetti bolognese, vegetarian mushroom spaghetti bolognese

mushroom spaghetti bolognese recipe - for pasta and mushroom lovers, this recipe of mushroom spaghetti bolognese is a treat. i did check many recipes online for bolognese and finally came up with my own version.

i have tried to kept the ingredients authentic as in a bolognese, except for carrots and white or red wine. i did not have white or red wine, so have added balsamic vinegar instead.

the bolognese sauce is made first and then the spaghetti are tossed in the sauce.  here i have used organic durum wheat spaghetti.

the result was smooth, flavorful and spiced pasta dish that even beat the gourmet food that one gets outside. the mushrooms adds a lot of texture to the dish and combines with the smoothness of spaghetti very well.

can we substitute mushroom with some other vegetable?


dassana February 4, 2013 9

yes ashwini. you can add carrots, broccoli, french beans, cauliflower. use whatever veggies you have. you can just steam or boil them first and then use the same stock to be added in the bolognese sauce.
