by Claire Nolan

Ingredients

for 8 servings

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 carrots, finely diced
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 italian sausages, casings removed, 1 sweet, 1 hot
  • 1 lb (455 g) ground sirloin
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
  • ½ cup (120 mL) red wine
  • 28 oz (800 g) crushed tomato
  • 16 oz (500 mL) beef broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cup (100 g) parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup (120 mL) heavy cream
  • 1 lb (500 g) penne pasta, cooked to box instructions

Garnish

  • parmesan cheese, shavings

Preparation

  1. In a large pot, set on medium heat, add the olive oil and sauté the onions, celery, carrots, and garlic until they are soft, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the ground beef and the sausages. Season with salt and pepper, and break up the meat with a spoon and frying until no longer pink.
  4. Next, add the tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and red wine. Stir and reduce until the wine has almost completely evaporated.
  5. Now add all the remaining ingredients, except the parmesan and cream. Stir to ensure everything is well mixed.
  6. Simmer for 30 minutes to 3 hours. The longer the simmer, the deeper and more concentrated the flavor.
  7. Stir in the parmesan and cream to the sausage bolognese.
  8. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce.
  9. Serve with more parmesan, if desired.
  10. Enjoy!
