Classic Pasta Bolognese

fresh rigatoni, parmesan, hearty tomato sauce
4.1 stars
(669 reviews)
Slow-cooked beef is blended with a hearty tomato sauce and then served alongside beautiful, Cucina Fresca fresh rigatoni. There's a bit of freshly grated Parmesan on the side for you to sprinkle on as you desire. Add a side of garlic bread or roasted vegetables to round out the meal.

It's inconvenient that you need to take the meat out of the tray and need to use another oven safe container.
2 Stars
Really watery sauce...watery and oily.
5 Stars
Easily one of our favorites!
3 Stars
It was delicious but the portion seemed small for the price
3 Stars
Could use more meat and less pasta.
2 Stars
Pasta was tough, even after I microwaved for an extra two minutes. Sauce was watery. This is the only Munchery meal I've had so far that I thought was no better than a TV dinner.
5 Stars
This dish was delish! Perfectly cooked (al dente) pasta with a flavorful, meaty sauce. Perfect combination and great flavors. I look forward to ordering this again!
3 Stars
Sauce did not adhere to pasta well and could use a little salt. Otherwise, the flavor was really wonderful!
2 Stars
The pasta was rubbery and may have been slightly under cooked. It was fairly clear the pasta was not seasoned with anything and as a result the pasta was just a bland, flavorless component. The meat sauce was good but not enough to carry the dish.
3 Stars
Pasta noodles not cooked enough
2 Stars
Pasta was pretty dry
5 Stars
Lots of flavor and really great rigatoni
5 Stars
My husband really enjoyed this. Said the sauce is very flavorful and it heats up nicely.
3 Stars
The sauce was a little bland to me and didn't coat the pasta enough. I wish there was a more generous portion of sauce.
4 Stars
Good but wish it had more flavor.
5 Stars
This really good with flavorful sauce
4 Stars
Really good, One thing to raise is that while the texture upon delivery is perfect balance of protein and sauce-iness - after heating, the sauce is absorbed by the general heating process and becomes dry. Still good, but mostly just crumbled meat.
3 Stars
Very happy with the presentation and packaging! Very yummy too, I may or may not have licked the bowl1) My order had way too much pasta and not enough sauce. 2) either cook the pasta a bit more, or put the pasta in a little steamer-like container.
5 Stars
Yum!

Tasty but overpriced
5 Stars
Excellent flavor and portion. It was a hit with the kids and adults!

Pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce was yummy!

I want to say there was not enough sauce for the amount of pasta but the sauce was flavorless and oily. First bad dish I've had. Everything else has been very good. Disappointing especially because of the higher price.
3 Stars
So, here's the thing. I've ordered this a number of times and I really like the flavor. It's very good. However, the portion is very small for the price. Especially given it is pasta, I think the price should be lowered or portion increased.
1 Stars
Very disappointing. The sauce flavor was delicious and the amount was generous,s but the pasta itself was hard like it had been cooked and then let to dry out for a while.
5 Stars
Really good. Whole family loves it. Could use a little more sauce and a little less meat in terms of the ratio in the meat sauce. But overall it is turning into a family favorite.
3 Stars
Smaller portion but appropriate for one person. A bit bland but nice and healthy!
4 Stars
My husband said this dish was delicious!
3 Stars
I've had this several times and I love it but I do want to say that it is wickedly salty. Even with no parm it tastes unnecessarily salty and is the only thing that keeps me from ordering it more often.
5 Stars
Wonderful blending of ingredients in the Bolognese. Appreciated that there was just a touch of garlic. In my humble opinion, too many U.S. chefs get carried away with garlic. Eating this reminded me of visiting Italy!
3 Stars
The bolognese is hit or miss. This time, it was really greasy and too salty. But I've also received orders of this item that were fabulous.
4 Stars
(Blended score) Ordered twice - 2 weeks ago - it was wonderful (5star) - right proportion of sauce vs pasta, pasta properly al dente, flavor of sauce was spot on for a Bolognese. But when I got it again Feb3, it was too salty for my taste(3star).
3 Stars
Difficult time opening Bolognese sauce and noodles were dry.
2 Stars
Pasta wasn't cooked properly
5 Stars
Taste is 5 stars. Extremely flavorful. Munchery does it again! I just love how gourmet each meal taste like. Only complaint is portion. Next time I'll order rolls on the side.
4 Stars
A tasty meal, but I found the portion size to be a bit small for the price. I would order it again, but would also grab a small side salad to go along with it. Overall, a quick and yummy lunch.
5 Stars
Amazing!
3 Stars
Last month I reviewed this dish and gave it 5 stars. It was truly excellent. Today, not so much. There was a strange herb in the mix tonight - not something any Italian would use! a perfect dish has been ruined!
4 Stars
It's a good start but it coagulates too easily with storage. Getting it to real bolognese status is a little bit tougher:

Flavorful and meaty sauce.

My family has liked this when it was ordered, but our last order was very very salty.
5 Stars
Becoming one of our favorites!
5 Stars
This was excellent on every front. Pasta was fresh, meat sauce was very flavorful and had a great little kick to it, and the portion size was enough for me to have leftovers for lunch the next day. Could be my favorite dinner yet!
5 Stars
I thought this was pretty darn tasty and I'm a bolognese connoisseur.

The bolonese sauce was good but very salty, even before adding the Parmesan.

It was a little on the salty side.

I'm sure this would have been delicious if it hadn't been so salty that I couldn't eat it.

Big flavor. Small portion.

Portion size too small.

The pasta is fresh, and the sauce has well-developed flavors, but the serving was very small, especially for the price.

Very good!

Good food, probably the most expensive spaghetti and meat sauce you'll ever buy. Oven safe container melted, almost ruined dinner, oops.
