Giada De Laurentiis' 20-Minute Bolognese Recipe Has People Talking

Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is famous for whipping up decadent, authentic Italian cuisine. Of course, some of her recipes take a decent amount of time to prepare. So if you aren't a professional chef, having the time to make them just isn't in the cards. However, with her 20-minute bolognese recipe, you can have a fancy, indulgent dinner any night of the week. 

Giada shared a video of the easy recipe on her TikTok account, @giadadelaurentiis, and with 2.1 million views, plenty of people are excited about giving this simple Italian recipe a try. Warning: there is a slight catch to this dish that has commenters buzzing.

Yepppp. People are saying this isn't really bolognese. While a traditional bolognese sauce is typically more of a ragu made with beef, red wine, celery, and tomato paste, the 20-minute version has some shortcuts going on. But something tells us it's still over-the-top delicious. Hey, if it's good enough for Giada, it's good enough for anyone, right? Plus, it takes a fraction of the time! 

While there are some naysayers complaining (every party has a pooper) about this recipe not being the real deal, others can't wait to try it. @Danielle Brown said, "Omg, I need to make a vegan version 🥰." Another commenter, @Marcyfarcy added, "My 20- year-old daughter makes one of your pasta dishes and it’s amazing! She makes it for everyone, and they love it too, and some then make it for themselves." And @Hope Adkins Brogan added, "Looks so good... I went and ordered the tomatoes and the pasta! Yum, can’t wait to make it!"
