Chef notes

I am a firm believer in having a dish for every mood, and this one happens to be completely appropriate for so many of them. Celebrating the end of a productive, satisfying day? Bolognese. Need a comforting hug of a dish because you're feeling a little down? Bolognese. Hungry? Bolognese. My version of the traditional preparation is loaded with hearty walnuts and lentils, veggies and tons of herbs, which is guaranteed to always be just the thing.

Technique tip: Many people toss cooked pasta with some oil to keep the noodles from sticking together, but that actually creates a barrier between the flavorful sauce and pasta. Instead, I recommend either just rinsing the pasta with a little cold water or keeping some of the cooking water in the pot with the pasta until you're ready to add the sauce.
