Pasta Bolognese

@ mirandablue
While I am posting this pasta bolognese I cooked on Christmas day, the olive oil, garlic and cheese from my pasta dinner are still singing flavors in my mouth.  It's true what they say--no woman is lonely eating pasta, I am paraphrasing.:p

I've been following this bolognese sauce recipe since I learned how to cook pasta.   But instead of  bacon (which I forgot to buy), I used ham.  The other ingredients are ground beef, carrots, celery, garlic, onions, tomato sauce, cream, red wine, salt & pepper.  I added fresh basil and button mushrooms.  This was the first time I used conchiglie or shell pasta, a pasalubong from my sister.   I thought the conchiglie was a bit strange for bolognese sauce.  But the shell-shaped pasta was actually perfect to hold the chunky sauce.  The burst of sauce when you bite into the shell pasta was quite enjoyable.

Shell shape pasta is my favorite kind of pasta to use for any pasta recipe.
