Italian Meat Sauce

“Because it has ground meat, it is called Bolognese sauce. You can use any combination of ground meat and can serve it over any type of pasta or rice. It is great with lasagna. This will take close to three hours total, so prepare yourself! Makes enough for one large lasagne or 16 servings.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the onions, carrots, celery, and salt pork (if using) in a food processor and process to a fine paste. In a heated skillet with olive oil, brown this combination.
  2. Add the ground meat to the skillet and brown.
  3. Once the meat is browned, add the wine and cook to evaporate it.
  4. Add the salt, black pepper, tomatoes, tomato paste, and water. Bring to a boil and lower the heat to simmer for 2 hours covered. Stir from the bottom every 20 minutes. Be careful that the heat is not too high - it will burn.
  5. Uncover and simmer 1 more hour.
  6. Enjoy!
