This is sooooo easy to make, all you need is a couple of hours to devote to it!!! The flavor and texture is just great!!! I really finely chopped my carrots so they really formed a nice sauce with the other ingredients. I had never even thought of making spaghetti bolognese because I thought it was too involved but this is really easy and worth it!! Thanks so much Chef Itchy Monkey for posting this great recipe from Martha Stewart, a real keeper!!!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make sauce: In a dutch oven (or a 5-quart saucepan), heat oil over high heat. Add onions, carrots, and garlic; cook, stirring, until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add beef and pork; cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste; cook 1 minute. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Add wine and tomatoes. Bring sauce to a simmer; cook, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 1 hour. Add milk; simmer until completely absorbed, about 15 minutes more. Season again with salt and pepper.
  3. When sauce is almost done, cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until al dente, according to package instructions; drain. Toss pasta with half the meat sauce; save remaining sauce for next day. Serve sprinkled with cheese.
