Slow-Roasting Is The Secret To A More Robust Bolognese
When Bolognese sauce is slow-roasted in an oven's hot, circulating air, it's subjected to a much steadier simmer, allowing the flavors to develop slowly and perhaps deliberately.
The result of slow-roasting Bolognese in the oven is that the aromas intensify and strike you instantly, brimming on the surface of the sauce and throughout.
Let your Bolognese sauce roast in the oven for up to four hours. The sauce gets thicker the longer it cooks, and a brown, caramelized layer forms on the top and sides of the pot.
