Who doesn’t love Bolognese right? However, have you ever tried Rice Bolognese before? you’re maybe familiar with Spaghetti Bolognese but rice bolognese? In today’s article we’ll discuss about the weirdly delicious Rice Bolognese!
So first of all, what is exactly spaghetti bolognese? how did it gain the name? what’s the story behind it?
Spaghetti is a long, thin, cylindrical, solid pasta. It is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine. Like other pasta, spaghetti is made of milled wheat and water. Italian spaghetti is made from durum wheat semolina (source: Wikipedia)
Bolognese is a sauce made out of mostly minced meat originated from Bologna, Italy (that’s where it got its name). Bolognese is popular with its pasta friend because Italians love eating pasta. Usually where there is a bolognese sauce, there is also pasta.
However, do we really have to consume the sauce only with pasta? or do we have another option? few weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night and felt super hungry. I ran to the kitchen to see if there was any food, but I only found some leftover white rice and some cold bolognese sauce.
I tried to find some pasta but soon realized that I ran out of pasta. So I thought ” why not try to eat the Rice with the Bolognese sauce? ” I never tried it before nor it ever crossed my mind before because I always thought the only way to enjoy Bolognese is by eating it with pasta.
Long story short, I ended up eating the whole 2 packages of rice with the bolognese sauce and was amazed with the taste of it. Tasted way better that I expected, tasted GOOD!!
And then I was curious about the nutrition, is it healthy? perhaps healthier than pasta? I typed to google and asked about the comparison between the pasta and rice. and I found this result!
