Tuesdays At The Table - Quick Bolognese Sauce

Hi gang!  I hope you had a nice weekend.  :-)  Every week I'm amazed by & grateful for all of you that contribute your yummy recipes.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Bolognese sauce is one of my favorites.  It tastes great and it's super easy! I got this recipe from Good Housekeeping.

Quick Bolognese Sauce

1 1/2 pounds ground beef/veal/pork
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large stalk celery, chopped
1 large carrot, shredded
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes in puree
Salt and ground black pepper
1/2 cup whole milk

1.Heat 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven over high heat until hot. Add ground meat, onion, celery, and carrot, and cook 10 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, breaking up meat with side of spoon. Drain off fat. Stir in tomato paste; cook 2 minutes.

2.Add red wine and cook 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; heat to boiling, breaking up tomatoes with side of spoon. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3.Stir milk into sauce; cover and simmer 5 minutes. Use half of sauce to toss with 1 pound pasta, cooked, for 6 main-dish servings. Freeze the other half of the sauce to use later!

  1. Thanks so much for hosting the bloghop each week! I always look forward to linking up to it! Your blog is just so cute!

  2. I shared a pasta pie I made for the 2nd time with my little cousin who was visiting. It's the perfect dish to make with kids b/c it requires a lot of hands-on help and steps. It takes awhile to put together but the presentation is special enough to bring as a covered dish or serve to company!
