Bolognese Sauce

Posted by Lindsey On 12:17 PM

Ben had to work all day yesterday and he usually doesn't have to work on Saturdays so I decided to make something special for dinner. He loves Bolognese sauce and I had saved this recipe from Pioneer Woman awhile back, so I decided this is what I would make. It was very easy to make and turned out great. I halved the recipe and we still have tons of leftovers, I have a feeling it will taste even better tonight.

Pastor Ryan's Bolognese Sauce
from Pioneer Woman Cooks

1 1/2 cups grated carrots
1 large red onion, diced
1/2 cup olive oil
2 pounds ground beef
2 tablespoons dried oregano flakes
2 tablespoons dried basil flakes
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 to 2 cups red wine
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
2 28-ounce cans whole tomatoes
1 cup milk
Fresh Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or skillet over medium heat. Add grated carrots and onions and cook for a few minutes.
Make a well in the center of the mixture, then add in the ground beef. Cook for a few minutes until brown, gradually stirring it into the carrot mixture.
Throw in oregano and basil. Use fresh if you have it; if you don’t, it’s fine.
When the meat is browned and combined with other ingredients, make another well. Add tomato paste and let it heat.
Add garlic and stir to combine.
Make a well in the center of the mixture and add red wine. Stir together.
Add Worcestershire and stir.
Add canned tomatoes.
Finally, pour in milk, stir, and let simmer for 30 minutes to 2 hours—however long you need.

Serve with pasta and a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
