What should I serve with pasta bolognese?

makeupyourworld | Apr 13, 201903:49 PM     11

Hello all! I am making bolognese for the first time this week. I have decided to use Marcella Hazan's recipe, no substitutions. Going with beef and pork for the meats.

I am going to make fresh pasta to serve my sauce over but have no idea what else to serve with this meal. I like to serve some assorted antipasti, a vegetable, a bread (I bake lots of it) and a dessert. Please give me some ideas of what to make while the sauce simmers leisurely for hours. Thanks so much! For reference- here are some things I have made recently to give you an idea of my skillset which i'd say is in the middle (I am 20 years old)
