Easy Beef and Veggie Bolognese

Easy Beef and Veggie Bolognese created by Peter J

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Brown the beef, drain fat, and set aside.
  • Saute onion, celery (if using) and garlic in a little oil till onion softens.
  • Add carrots, zucchini, and other veggies. Saute for 3 - 5 minutes.
  • Return beef to pan with veggies.
  • 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.
  • Simmer for 30 minutes, or more if you have the time. Or less if you don't!
  • 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.
