I am with you Sleepyhead, I love spag bol and it is a tasty, filling and wholesome meal.
If I have the time and some nice fresh toms' from a local supplier I like to reduce the tomatoes down to make an intense tommy suace.
Not tried rhubarb in the recipe, but have used grated carrot.
Apparently spaghetti is the wrong type of pasta for bolognese sauce, it's too thin. Italians use thicker chunkier pasta, spaghetti is for smooth creamy sauces.
Indeed, I often use bucatini for my spag bol, which I get from a wonderful shop near town, called Italian and Continental Store. I don't see bucatini often elsewhere.
