I love when my Zac helps me cook Sunday dinner! He always introduces me to new recipes that I didn’t even know existed. The other day I asked Zac if he could find something that we had never tried before. I know that I want to try new things and I love to share them with you. We experienced Bolognese sauce and it was incredible!
It’s a hearty sauce that is rich with flavor! You can serve it with any kind of noodles that you would like. We made homemade noodles that were to die for!
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup onion
2/3 cup celery, chopped
2/3 cup carrot, chopped
1 pound beef chunks, we used a roast
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons nutmeg
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 cups canned tomatoes, cut up, with their juice
Parmesan cheese, grated, for garnish
1 pound pasta, cooked according to package
In a skillet, put the oil, butter, and chopped onion and turn the heat on a medium.
Cook and stir the onion until it has become translucent, then add the chopped celery and carrot. Cook for 2 minutes longer.
Add the beef chunks, salt and pepper. Cook until the beef is cooked through, stirring the whole time.
Lower the heat, and then add the milk. Let simmer and stir frequently until it has decreased the milk. Add the nutmeg and stir.
Add the vinegar, and scrape the bottom of the pan to get all the flavor for your sauce. Let it simmer until it has evaporated, then add the chicken broth, tomatoes and stir thoroughly to coat all ingredients well. Turn the heat to medium, and when the juices begin to bubble, turn the heat down, so the sauce can simmer.
Cook, uncovered, for an hour or more, stirring from time to time.If the sauce starts to dry out, add a 1/2 cup water.
Drizzle sauce over cooked drained pasta and served with grated Parmesan cheese on top!
