Make this: Dad's Bolognese Spaghetti.

My dad is an incredible chef. I love almost everything he makes and this bolognese sauce is no exception.  I love a good meal at home. Isn't there something comforting about eating dinner with family?

I snagged a picture of his recipe for the bolognese sauce - printed from an online recipe site, it appears (not the newspaper one, but the one behind it):

The recipe, taken from All

Ingredients -

2 carrots, shredded

6 ounces tomato sauce
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 pound pasta

Instructions -
1. In a large skillet, warm oil over medium heat and sauté bacon, onion, and garlic until bacon is browned and crisp, set aside
2. In a large saucepan, brown beef and pork. Drain excess fat. Stir in bacon mixture, mushrooms, carrots, celery, tomatoes, tomato sauce, wine, stock, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper to saucepan. Cover, reduce heat and simmer one hour, stirring occasionally.
