How to Cook Cowboy’s Cinnamon Bolognese:

  7. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the sauce simmer away for 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to truly come together.
  8. After 10 minutes, remove the lid, give the sauce a taste, and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.
  9. Serve it hot, paired with your favorite pasta, and savor the unique twist of Cowboy’s Cinnamon Bolognese. Enjoy, partner!
