I love, love, love Bolognese sauce. My mom used to make the best one. Forever and a day I tried to make it just the way I grew up eating it. I tried recipe after recipe without luck, until I came across this one, and it’s everything and then some. It’s amazing and you’re welcome…


What you’ll need:

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp dried basil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (6oz) can tomato paste
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 2 (28oz) cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 oz parmesan cheese

Heat the oil in a large dutch oven. Add carrots and onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add ground beef and cook until browned and fully mixed with carrots and onions. Add garlic, basil and oregano and cook for 5 more minutes.

Add tomato paste, stir. Add wine, Worcestershire sauce and canned tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Pour in milk and let it simmer for anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours! I personally add the parmesan cheese right into the sauce, while others prefer to add some on top of their dish, the choice is yours! Serve with pasta of your liking!

Bon Apètit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
