Today’s recipe is for a delectable Bolognese sauce which is basically a ragu’ or Italian tomato meat sauce which originated in Bologna, Italy. Kids tend to love this dish so if you have picky eaters this may be a good way to get some protein in with your little pasta lovers. LOL You can serve this with any pasta you like. I tend to like it with a gnocchi which is a potato dumpling but you can also serve it over fettuccine or any pasta of your choice. Cook the sauce on slow and low to let all the flavors come together in a hearty sauce.
- package of chop meat (Ground beef, pork, veal or even turkey)
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 stalk of celery sliced thin
- 1 carrot cut very fine
- 3 cloves of minced garlic
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 1 can of crushed tomatoes
- 1 can of whole peeled tomatoes
- salt and pepper
- 1 box of pasta
Heat a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil in a pot. Add your garlic, onion and veggies and cook until soft. Then add your chop meat of choice and cook until no longer pink. Add your crushed and whole peeled tomatoes and simmer. Season with oregano, salt and pepper. Cook on low for at least an hour and serve over your favorite pasta!
