Spaghetti Bolognese

use 10-Plated Spaghetti 3

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love pasta! My boys ask for it on a daily basis…so I try to make a different pasta every week to broaden their taste buds. This Spaghetti Bolognese is by far their favorite! And it will soon become your family’s favorite too. A classic Bolognese sauce simmers for hours on the stove to achieve the perfect balance of tender meat and flavor. This sauce is a really easy to make meat and blush-sauce and thankfully doesn’t take hours to make but the results taste like they have been simmering all day.   

Spaghetti Bolognese
1 1/2 lbs ground beef/veal/pork mix
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
fresh ground pepper
1/2 cup good red wine
1/2 cup water
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jar (28-32 oz) your favorite traditional spaghetti sauce
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese + more for serving
1 lb angel hair pasta

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil; add the beef mix and cook until browned, seasoning with the salt and pepper. Add the red wine and sauté for one minute.

Add the water and the garlic; simmer for a few minutes then add the jar of sauce. Stir the meat. Add the one cup of chicken stock to the empty jar of sauce, cover and shake; then add the broth to the skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer at least 10 minutes. In the meantime, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add the pasta and cook as directed.

A few minutes before serving add the heavy cream.
