Chinese Sausage Bolognese Pasta

Pasta is extremely popular around the world. This is especially true in 2020, since the world is the most global and connected it’s ever been. Let’s try to find people who don’t know what pasta is and where it comes from. I am sure we can find people who like to at least want to try. Sometimes cooks localize certain ingredients to fit the people of the area. Personally for me, I am in love with fusion food and all cultures. There is no better way for me to honour two cultures than to cross breed recipes and ingredients. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Please enjoy this Chinese Italian blend!
