Why do they call it spaghetti bolognese?

Spaghetti bolognese is a classic Italian dish that has been prepared for generations. It is traditionally made with minced beef and tomato sauce. The name of this dish comes from the city of Bologna, which is located in Italy. Spaghetti bolognese is also known as spaghetti alla bolognese or pasta alla bolognese.

Traditionally made with beef this recipe uses chicken instead to make a similar tomato chicken sauce and taste just as well.
