Difference btwn marinara/bolognese/meat sauce

danhole | Mar 3, 2008 01:35 PM

I am trying new restaurants in an attempt to get my picky DH to broaden his/our horizons. He likes good old meat sauce. Think about your American mama making her sauce with ground beef and tomato paste or sauce - that's what he likes. He cannot tolerate chunks of tomato in his sauce. He literally flicks them off his plate, and whines. So when I am looking at menus what should I be aware of? I think that marinara and bolognese are thinner, and have chunks but I'm not sure, since I never order something like that when I order at an Italian resto. And I am tired of taking him and listening to the whining.
