“I spent a lot of time looking through recipes for a decent yet easy Bolognse sauce. I ended up fusing a few of them together. The longest amount of time is the wait time for the sauce to simmer and blend. I do not use basil in my recipe because my brother is severely allergic to anything using basil and pinenuts. I have begun using this as a basic sauce for all my pasta dishes that include meant: lasagna, baked ziti, spaghetti . . . . This is a VERY forgiving recipe. I hope you like it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef and sausage together on medium-high heat.
  2. Halfway through browning, add garlic and dried oregano.
  3. Continue to brown all the way through, DO NOT DRAIN FAT.
  4. Sprinkle flour over meat and stir until flour dissolves and disappears.
  5. Add heavy cream and milk, simmer until it all evaporates (this helps make the meat extremely tender).
  6. Repeat with wine.
  7. Add in all the tomatoes, the tomato paste, and broth.
  8. Simmer on low for close to 2 hours.
  9. Stir in brown sugar (this is to help cut the sourness and acidity).
