Who doesn’t love pasta with homemade meat sauce? It’s got a special taste of home that you just can’t get from a jar. From a typical marinara to this Bolognese sauce, homemade is always best!

What is Bolognese?
So, what makes Bolognese different than a typical spaghetti sauce? While both are tomato-based meat sauces made with garlic and onion, bolognese also includes the addition of celery and carrot plus a little bit of milk. It may sound unusual, but these ingredients add a distinct flavor, a bit of richness, and some sweetness.
THE VERY best (freezer-friendly) bolognese sauce! So rich, so hearty, so perfect. Serve over pasta or gnocchi!

It’s cold. It’s snowing. And it’s parka season. Which can only mean one thing. It’s time to stay in with the heartiest, meatiest bolognese sauce tossed in al dente pappardelle pasta, some crusty bread, and a glass of (the leftover) wine.

This sauce is thick and very meaty but if you prefer a thinner consistency, a little bit of beef stock will work beautifully here. I, however, prefer my sauce super thick to coat up all that pasta (and crusty bread, of course).

You can also freeze the leftover sauce as it reheats very very well, making this perfect for your go-to weeknight meals. All you have to do is boil some pasta noodles prior to serving!


• Noodles Noodles
•Tomato paste
•Minced meat
• Seasoning for meat (Edu Guedes)
•Parmesan cheese


Prepare the pasta according to the packaging (al dente) then crush the garlic cloves in the pan, add a spoonful of margarine and let it brown. Throw in the noodles and sauté well!




Season the meat with garlic, seasoning and salt. Then put a drizzle of olive oil in the pan with the chopped onion and let it brown, then pour the meat slowly, stirring with the spoon so that it is very loose.

Then put the chopped olives and tomato paste and let it boil well.

Now just put the pasta on the plate, the meat on top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese!

Quick and delicious recipe!
