Cozy Bolognese Sauce

Cozy Bolognese Sauce - Bolognese is just a fancy way of saying “meat sauce.” Although it is commonly served over pasta, this sauce is incredibly versatile. When you have leftover Bolognese in the fridge, the possibilities are endless. You can stuff peppers, wrap it in egg wraps with fresh greens or make mini lasagna muffins—and so much more!

Cozy Bolognese Sauce recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 lb (454 g) ground beef
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup (66 g) tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) coconut aminos
  • 1 (28-oz [794-g]) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
  • 6 basil leaves, chopped

How to make Cozy Bolognese Sauce

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large Dutch oven and brown the meat over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. I like to use a potato masher to break up the beef while it cooks. Drain the meat and discard the fat.
  2. Add the olive oil, onion, carrots and garlic to the pot with the meat and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the onion is tender and the carrots are al dente or almost cooked through. Add the salt, Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes to the meat and vegetables. Stir to combine. Stir in the tomato paste and coconut aminos, and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Pour the tomatoes into the pot and stir to lift up all the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  4. Bring the sauce to a slow simmer and stir in the heavy cream and basil. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover the pot and continue to simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  5. Uncover the sauce and season with more salt if necessary. Continue to simmer the sauce, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and serve hot.
PRO TIP: You can freeze the leftover Bolognese for up to 4 months. So, make a double batch so you can have meat sauce on hand for a long time.
