Ragu Bolognese Sauce

Did you know that cooking Bolognese sauce is really easy? Believe me, you do not need to spend more than 15 minutes in the kitchen. Then, choose a good movie and enjoy it while your sauce is slowly cooking on the stove. Wait for the happy ending and, finally, have this fabulous home-made Bolognese sauce with your favorite pasta!

Ragu Bolognese Sauce

500 gr of pork minced meat
3 tbsp of olive oil
2 carrots
2 celery sticks
1 white onion
1 garlic clove
1 glass of red wine (150 ml)
300 ml tomato puree
300 ml of chicken stock, or water
2 springs of rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1 pinch of ground black pepper

How to prepare:

Pour the olive in a pot and heat it on the stove at medium/high heat. When the olive oil is hot add the pork meat. Brown the meat stirring all the time.

In a mixer put carrots, celery, onion and garlic and chop them. Stir the vegetables into the meat and cook for a couple of minutes. Then pour the wine in the pot and let it evaporate.

Finally, add tomato puree, stock, rosemary, salt and pepper. Stir and bring to boil. Then low the heat to very low, cover with a lid and cook for 2 hours stirring from time to time. If during the cooking you see that the sauce is becoming too dry add some more stock or water.

When the sauce is ready, adjust it with salt and pepper and use it for seasoning your favorite pasta. Do not forget to sprinkle it with a generous handful of Parmigiano cheese.
