How is my bolognese sauce components?

So here's my bolognese sauce recipe I shared to other people:

Italian sausage
lean ground beef
tomato paste
dried basil
dried oregano
bay leaves
Dried porchini
Green bell pepper
red wine

I was told either that it's not authentic or it doesn't represent the correct balance of flavor in bolognese sauce, but they don't tell me what's the right components for bolognese. So that left me wondering what I did wrong. Do you see any problem in it?

That's not a recipe. It's a list of ingredients. So it's hard to answer you.

"traditional" bolognese recipes don't use sausage, red wine or porcinis.

Save for the milk, those ingredients suggest a basic homemade red sauce

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
