What is Bolognaise?
According to Wikipedia:
Bolognese sauce is a meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy, hence the name. In Italian cuisine, it is customarily used to dress tagliatelle al ragù and to prepare lasagne alla bolognese.
In other words, it is tomato based spaghetti sauce with a fancy name. 🙂
