Bolognese sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 large can tomatoes
  • 4 large carrots
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 3 large onions
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 500g minced meat (beef, pork or a mixture)

  • Pepper
  • Red wine
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • (optional) Cinnamon
  • (optional) 1 tablespoon Butter

Preparation

Cut the carrots, celery and onions into small cubes, then sauté in olive oil until lightly browned to create soffritto. Transfer into a bowl. Then increase the heat to high, add some heat-resistant oil and brown the meat, adding salt and pepper to taste. Once done, deglaze the pan with the wine and re-add the soffritto. Add the tomatoes, garlic and paprika. If going for the optinal ingredients, add them now. Let simmer for at least an hour. About 10 minutes before serving, add the herbs. This sauce works as is with any noodles and some parmesan, or can be combined with a bechamel for lasagna.

  • 500g (drained weight, 2 small cans) kidney beans
