Classic Bolognese Sauce

Servings : 6 ** Prep Time: About 15 minutes **Total Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes


  • 2 tbsp of olive oil

  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

Put the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion, and saute until onion becomes translucent. About 5 minutes. Add the ground beef and let it cook until fully browned, about 5 minutes. Make sure to break up the ground beef while browning so that it cooks evenly.

Add the crushed tomatoes, pepper, basil and sugar. Stir and bring to a boil.

Cover the pot. Set the burner to low heat and let simmer for about 60 minutes. Sauce will turn a deep red color.

Serve over your favorite pasta.
