AN AUTHENTIC BOLOGNESE SAUCE FIT FOR YOUR RECIPE BOX.
I remember the first time I made a bolognese sauce. It was a massive recipe (not that this one is short!) that I cooked all day. Literally all day. When it was time for dinner there was complete silence from around the table. It was delicious. Since then, I’ve continued to improve the recipe which I’m posting up here today. This recipe is for an authentic bolognese sauce that is going to be absolutely divine in about an hour.
I have been able to cut down the cooking time and achieve amazing results with a little creative preparation. Shredding the carrots, onions, shallots and celery was the big ticket to cutting down the time. They release their internal goodness more quickly, adding big layers of flavor to the sauce.
As always, I pour this delicious sauce over zoodles (zucchini noodles). If you have never tried them before, pick up a spiralizer and give them a shot. Their brightness and wonderful flavor meld perfectly with the bolognese sauce. You’ll never know that you’re not eating real pasta- I promise! For this recipe, I added raw zoodles without doctoring them up at all. If you would like, check out my delicious zoodles recipe.
QUICK COOKING TIP: Cooking this recipe longer will simply intensify the flavors. I typically cook this recipe for about two hours, but it is wonderful at one hour as well. If you are going to cook it longer, hold off on adding in the cream for a while. There is less chance of burning the cream after it is added. If you really want to have a deliciously authentic bolognese sauce, make this recipe a day ahead and reheat. Letting the flavors combine overnight really brings all the flavors together!
