    Gingernut's Note:

    This is just plain old bolognese, with some shredded veggies added for nutrition. I usually use this method to "doctor" a commercial sauce, such as Ragu or Five Brothers.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Brown the beef, drain fat, and set aside.
    2. 2
      Saute onion, celery (if using) and garlic in a little oil till onion softens.
    3. 3
      Add carrots, zucchini, and other veggies. Saute for 3 - 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Return beef to pan with veggies.
    5. 5
      Add pasta sauce. If you are using a plain sauce (like a passata), then season with salt, pepper, basil, and oregano. If you are using a commercial sauce that already has flavourings added, you should be able to get by without it.
    6. 6
      Simmer for 30 minutes, or more if you have the time. Or less if you don't!
    7. 7
      Serve over hot cooked pasta.

      Really nice and quick way to enhance the flavour of bottled pasta sauce and add a bit more substance to it.
