For a weeknight pasta Bolognese recipe with a sauce that tasted as if it had simmered all day, not under an hour, we used the food processor to chop most of the ingredients, used a sweet white wine to lend sweetness to the sauce, and cooked the meatloaf mix in milk, which helped break it down and soften it to give it that long-cooked flavor and texture.

Serves 4 to 6

Sweet white wines such as Gewürztraminer, Riesling, and even white Zinfandel work especially well with this sauce. To obtain the best texture, be careful not to break up the meat too much when cooking it with the milk in step 4. With additional cooking and stirring, it will continue to break up.
