    I've just finished eating this after a four hour cook. This is easily my favorite pasta. A jolly old Italian man's family recipe brightening up a rainy day for a working class 20 something on the other side of the world, it's incredible.

    Personalmente preferisco la versione bolognese del ragù, quella che ha appena cucinato è la versione napoletana/pugliese della ricetta ed è molto diversa però si vede che è italiano e sente l’anima del cibo
