One of the famous Italian sauce is Bolognaise sauce, prepared with minced meat, tomatoes with a hand ful of spices n herbs, this sauce tastes awesome with pastas...the origin of this sauce is from Bologna in Italy..Bolognese sauce is sometimes taken to be a tomato sauce but authentic recipes have only a small amount of tomato.

Take a small muslin cloth, put the coriander seeds, cloves, cinnamon stick,rosemary sprigs, dry red chillies into the muslin cloth n tie them well, they will looks like a small bag, keep aside..
