Bingo...

Bolognese sauce, known in Italian as ragł alla bolognese, is a meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy. In Italian cuisine, it is customarily used to dress "tagliatelle al ragł" and to prepare "lasagne alla bolognese". In the absence of tagliatelle, it can also be used with other broad, flat pasta shapes, such as pappardelle or fettuccine, or with short tube shapes, such as rigatoni or penne. Genuine ragł alla bolognese is a slowly cooked sauce, and its preparation involves several techniques, including sweating, sautéing and braising. Ingredients include a characteristic soffritto of onion, celery and carrot, different types of minced or finely chopped beef, often alongside small amounts of fatty pork meat such as pancetta. Red wine and a small amount of tomato concentrate or tomatoes are added, and the dish is then gently simmered at length to produce a thick sauce.

The earliest documented recipe of an Italian meat-based sauce (ragł) served with pasta comes from late 18th century Imola, near Bologna. The first published recipe for a meat sauce for pasta that is specifically described as being "bolognese" appeared in Pellegrino Artusi's cookbook of 1891. The ragł alla bolognese that is now traditionally associated with tagliatelle and lasagne is somewhat different from Artusi's recipe. While many traditional variations currently exist, in 1982 the Italian Academy of Cuisine registered a recipe for authentic ragł alla bolognese with the Bologna Chamber of Commerce (incorporating some fresh pancetta and a little milk). In Italy, ragł alla bolognese is often referred to simply as ragł.

Outside Italy, the phrase "Bolognese sauce" often refers to a tomato-based sauce to which mince (beef or pork) has been added; such sauces typically bear little resemblance to ragł alla bolognese. Whereas in Italy ragł is not used with spaghetti,[1] so-called spaghetti bolognese has become a popular dish in many other parts of the world.

It's not the thick tomato sauce with ground beef you find in the US and Canada.

Completely agree. I wasn't clear with what I was trying to say and I sorta mis-read what you were saying (It wasn't my fault - I'm retarded ). I read it as "There's no such thing as meat sauce with pasta in Italy". There's not really a Spaghetti alla Bolognese, per se, but it CAN be ordered. No different than ordering Penne con (Ragu - It's understood) Bolognese. I've been to Italy 5 times and I don't do the tourist areas. I have a really good map (Screw a GPS - I go old-school when I drive in a foreign country) and like to explore the smaller towns. I speak somewhat understandable Italian, so the locals are generally friendly to me.

I also make a mean Venison Ragu.
