Make Restaurant-Quality Spaghetti Bolognese At Home
With all this extra time at home, you've likely tried your hand at a few comfort food dishes you rarely get around to making: long-simmering soups, rib roasts and the like. But if you want to enjoy a delicious (and typically time-intensive) dish without putting in all of the prep work, Piatti has you covered with their spaghetti bolognese, now available for curbside pickup or delivery.
Watch our Instagram Stories (saved under Keep CC Unique highlights) to learn how to serve up this classic Italian dish at home, with written recipe below.
Now, all you have to decide is which gelato to order for dessert.
Spaghetti bolognese is easy to make at home with help from Piatti.
- 1 order Piatti's spaghetti bolognese to-go (includes 1 pint of sauce and spaghetti for 2)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 oz chicken stock
- Parmesan and chili flakes for serving, optional.
- Boil water in a large pot.
- Heat separate pan over medium high heat.
- Once hot, add in:
- 8 oz of bolognese (For 1 serving. Each order contains 1 pint (16 oz) of sauce. Double ingredients below if serving 2.)
- 1-2 tablespoons of butter
- 2-3 oz chicken stock, depending on how thick you want the sauce
- Bring pan to a simmer.
- Once the water is boiling, add your pasta. Follow cooking instructions on the box until pasta is cooked al dente. Reserve 1/3 cup of pasta water.
- After sauce has reduced (about 4 minutes), add cooked pasta into the sauce. Add pasta water to sauce to thicken sauce and stir, until pasta is coated with sauce.
- Plate pasta. Add parmesan, chili flakes or your favorite garnish. Enjoy!

Order Takeout and Delivery from 30+ Cherry Creek North Restaurants
More than 30 Cherry Creek North restaurants are still serving up food and drinks to go.
Denver's stay-at-home order has been extended through May 8, and our local restaurants continue to need your support as their dining rooms remain closed.
In addition to regularly updating Cherry Creek North's Delivery, To-Go and Curbside Pick-Up website page, this week, Cherry Creek North Business Improvement District has added outdoor signs throughout the neighborhood to help promote restaurants during this time of need.
The signs include information about each restaurant's current offerings, but if you visit the CCN To Go page, you can learn about even more ways to support these establishments, including how to buy e-gift cards, ways to provide financial support for their staff and more information about other community giving programs they continue to support even during this challenging time for the restaurant industry.
