BOLOGNESE SAUCE – Large Family Sized

When I make Bolognese Sauce, I don’t follow a recipe.  I also use whatever vegetables I have in my refrigerator at the time.  I always cook Bolognese Sauce in a large quantity as I use what I need for the evening meal and freeze the rest. Therefore instant meal for another night!

The following recipe can be made on the STOVE TOP or in a CROCK-POT / SLOW COOKER (I now make mine in my flavour maker – here)

  1. 3 Tablespoons of Minced Garlic
  2. 3 Large Brown Onions - chopped
  3. 2 Large Eggplant (Aubergines) - chopped
  4. 8 Peeled Mushrooms - chopped
  5. 1 Red Capsicum - chopped
  6. 3 Stalks of Celery - chopped
  7. Fresh Parsley - chopped
  8. 4 Tins of Diced Tomatoes
  9. 1 Jar of Pasta Sauce
  10. Red Wine
  11. Fresh Bay Leaves
  12. Olive Oil
  13. Salt & Pepper
  14. 4 kg of Minced Beef
  1. Carrots
  2. Zucchini
  3. Shallots
  4. Leek
  1. Cut up all the vegetables and fry the onions, celery, parsley and garlic in olive oil until transparent.
  2. Next add the eggplant, followed by the mushroom and capsicum (and other vegetables you also may be using).
  3. Then add the mince (if still a little frozen, leaving the stove on low, will slowing defrost and cook through slowly) and cook till brown.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes, pasta sauce, wine, salt and pepper and finally the bay leaves.
  5. Stir throughout cooking process, and the longer it simmers the better!
  1. This can also be made in crock pot and infact, it tastes so much better when cooking the day before and simmering all day in the slow cooker.
No Excuses!
