This Bolognese Sauce is fantastic! Not only was this my first attempt at making any type of Bolognese Sauce, but my first time eating it. I was expecting a saucier sauce, but it was fantastic just the way it was. I loved all the veggies in it, as well as the sausage and ground beef combo. The entire family really enjoyed it as well.
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 lb ground beef
6 oz Italian sausage, skinned
1 cup red wine
18 oz can crushed tomatoes, chopped (ground)
1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped (1/4 tsp dry)
1 tsp fresh sage, chopped (1/4 tsp dry)
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large pan. Add celery, carrot, onion, garlic and cook about 5 minutes. Add meat and cook 10 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Deglaze pan with wine; let reduce. Add tomatoes and remaining ingredients and stir. Simmer for about 1 hour. Serve over fresh, hot pasta.
