Bolognese sauce

This Bolognese sauce is delicious and very easy to make. I serve it with pasta for my children, and with zucchini noodles, roasted vegetables, or a salad for myself.

You can make it, save it in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.  I hope you enjoy it!


Serves 6

600g or 21oz of lean beef mince
1 can of chopped tomatoes (400ml or 14oz)
4 garlic cloves
1 medium onion (or 2 small)
1 medium carrot (or 2 small)
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Finely chop the carrot and onion. Heat the olive oil on medium in a large pan and add the crushed garlic, finely chopped onion, and carrot. Cook for about 5 minutes until the onion becomes translucent. Add the minced meat and brown it. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, cinnamon and bring to a simmer. Cook on low to medium for about 40 minutes, until the sauce is reduced. Taste and add salt if needed. Make sure to stir regularly. Once cooked, serve on zucchini noodle or on a bed of steamed broccolini and decorate with finely chopped basil leaves.


This is how I have my bolognese (sometimes without the egg) and the kids have it with pasta.




This delicious sauce keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
