I'm so pleased that I tagged this recipe. DH enjoyed his dinner last evening more than he has anything in a long time. My adaptations were to omit the ketchup and to replace the wined with beef broth. To us it was ideal and I was instructed to print and keep this one *wink*. Thank you ,my friend, for something that finally made him a happy camper. Super easy and quick for a pasta sauce. I did have to let it simmer slowly for closer to an hour and a half as he was late getting home. It didn't harm the sauce in any way and, in fact, it had a very deep and rich flavor. Kudo's on your wonderful recipe.
Doubled this and froze for the future when I want to make a lasagna. A really good bolognese, added a little fennel seed to it as well.
This definitely is delish! We used ground round, one large red onion, instead of the ketchup used 1/4 cup tomato sauce, and all my herbs were dry. Served over linquine noodles and loved our supper.Thank you LifeIsGood for sharing! Made and reviewed for Culinary Quest 2014 - Cruisin' Culinary Queen.
The family loved this! I did cut it in half and it made the perfect amount for 4 people...I served it over spaghetti noodles with a side salad...I did throw on some shaved Parmesan cheese...this was easy to prepare and I was surprised that I had all the ingredients available...:D I did have to open a bottle of white wine...hic...but it didn't go to waste...thanks for posting it...:)
We love this recipe! My husband says it is equal to one of the entres at our favorite itallian restaurant. I made a few changes; cut it down to 4 servings so based on that used very rounded measures of the onion, carrots and celery. I only had veggie broth and red wine on hand. So used a 1/2 cup total of Sextant's Zin. Was told to cook with wine you enjoy drinking. Used 1 15oz can of trader joes organic tomato sauce and 3/4 tsp of dried thyme instead of fresh. Also the only salt used was the pinch added to veggies while cooking, didn't need to add any salt thereafter as the flavors were so good. Served it over pappardelle noodles with grated parmi and we are looking forward to making this for our friends at New Years. For us the 4 servings really turned out to be 2 plus enough left over for 1 lunch. Thank you for such a fantastic and easy recipe.
This is a very delicious meal. I made this as written with the exception of reducing the recipe to 6 servings. Quick and easy to put together. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT7 Golden Gourmets.
