    Spaghetti bolognese of courseeee
    Spaghetti Bolognese isn't an Italian dish, it's a meal invented in England by putting one type of Italian food on top of another type of Italian food.

    It would be a bit like baking fried chicken into a pumpkin pie and calling it a traditional American affair, or dumping sushi rolls into a noodle soup and passing it off as authentic Japanese.

    Tagliatelle al ragù alla Bolognese is an Italien dish though, the only issue with the English version is that they use spaghetti instead of the tagliatelle. Hardly as extreme as your comparisons. It's only the shape of the pasta that is different.

    If I cook any kind of pasta sauce I normally use tagliatelle as it's a much more fulfilling pasta than spaghetti, I never really got why the rest of the world embraced spaghetti as its chosen pasta. I always associate the sauce with lasagna though to be honest.

    I'm guessing its mainly a dish which is popular in the Bologna region and then a *******ised version of it internationally, in Rome or Milan you have to go to a tourist restaurant to find it.
