Ragù alla Bolognese

Why has it taken me a over a year to learn how to make a simple Ragù sauce?  It’s one of the easiest things to make yet, I had been buying it in a jar instead of making my own.  That is… until last week when Mamma Adelasia came over to FINALLY show me how to make her awesome sauce!
So, you need 1 carrot and half an onion.  Cut them in cubes and place them in a food processor.
and make them into small tiny pieces..
in a medium sauce pan, add Olive Oil and onion and carrots. Saute for a few minutes and then had ground beef on medium heat.
Brown ground beef. (at this time you could add some White wine for flavor-this did not have any)
Add a small amount of tomato sauce and cook for 5 minutes…
Add tomato sauce. Cover and simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours. (The amount of tomato sauce is up to you.  The picture below is enough for 2 meals)
Serve with Spaghetti or short pasta.

  1. great you learned how, it is actually easy 🙂 I would add a glass of red wine just after toasting the meat and wait until it evaporate before adding the tomato sauce, but you know, every italian have her own REAL RAGU' recipe 😉
