I lived in Northern Italy for 3 1/2 years and had many different Bolognese both restaurant prepared and in Italian homes. There are some variations, but the base is the same usually. The one variation that I never saw in Italy was the use of any herbs. The only seasoning is salt and pepper. If you can't find pancetta, you can use bacon, but I recommend the pancetta.
