Fresh tagliatelle is the traditional accompaniment for this perfect Bolognese Sauce, that pairs well with any flat pasta. Homemade chicken stock is ideal, because it gives the sauce body and a velvety texture as it slowly simmers. This meaty Northern Italian sauce tastes even better the day after it's made.

Made from a combination of beef and pork, these meatballs are a Scandinavian favorite that goes from appetizer to main in a flash (just add noodles). It's a tradition to serve them with sweet-tart lingonberry jam; if you can't find it, grape or red-currant jelly is a good substitute.
