From the God’s Love Kitchen: Beef Bolognese

(Serves 6)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ⅔ cup chopped celery
  • ⅔ cup chopped carrot
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt & pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 ½ cups canned plum tomato, cut up, with their juice
  • 1 to 1 ½ pounds pasta
  1. Add olive oil, carrot, celery, onion, garlic, and pinch of salt to pot. Turn heat on to medium.
  2. When vegetables start to sizzle, cook for 5 minutes until fragrant – stirring frequently.
  3. Add ground beef to pot, season with salt and pepper, and cook until no more raw beef is visible – breaking up ground beef with fork or back of spatula.
  4. Add beef broth and cook until about half has evaporated.
  5. Add tomatoes, bring to a gentle simmer and cook until beef is tender and sauce has thickened. Then add nutmeg.
  6. While sauce is cooking, cook your favorite pasta to your preferred doneness.
