If you use canned tomatoes, for the love of all that is good you have to let it simmer for at least 2 hours.

Also, if you use bay leaf (bay laurel), and you like it, use more than one. Use 6-7 or if you REALLY like it 12.

Well, first off you wouldn't be using tomats in a bolognese beside the tomato paste - but a good paste is important, not that canned Hunts crap. Also browning some mushrooms and tossing those bad boys in will really up the beef flavour in a general meat sauce. Skip crushed or diced tomats and use whole Roma's from Italy. They'll break down as they cook anyway and they taste much better.

And good lord, you use that many Bay leaves in anything? Why not just toss in a hunk of wood? 1 maybe 2 bay leaves is pretty sufficient for most everything...on earth.
