Bolognese Sauce, also known in Italian as ragù alla bolognese.

The Classic Italian Bolognese meat sauce is made with ground beef, pork, and Italian sausage, I just use ground beef as my daughter doesn’t like pork and Italian sausage. But you can add them if you and your family like.

Use it with any pasta, from spaghetti to lasagna, whole wheat, white or gluten-free, or try this Bolognese Sauce with a low-carb, healthier alternative to pasta using Spaghetti squash! It’s still amazingly delicious with half the calories! Spaghetti squash is a favorite ingredient for those seeking a lower-carb, paleo-friendly, clean eating, gluten-free alternative to pasta.

Cook Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Italian
Keyword: Bolognese Sauce, Fast, Italian, Lasagna, Meat Sauce, Pasta, Sauce
Servings: 8 people
Calories: 349kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 Onion large diced
  • 1 tbsp Minced Garlic or 3 minced cloves
  • 1 Kg Ground beef
  • 2 tsp Beef mix powder
  • 3.5 cup Tomato sauce
  • Paprika optional to taste
  • Green onion optional to taste
  • Thyme dried - optional to taste
  • Oregano dried - optional to taste
  • Parsley dried - optional to taste
  • Basil dried - optional to taste
  • Salt optional to taste
  • Black pepper optional to taste

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large pan, over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Add the ground meat and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until meat crumbles and no longer pink and most of the juice has evaporated.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and cook until meat is browned. Use the seasonings you like the most, the important thing is to always taste and understand what was the difference that each seasoning made in the flavor.
  • Taste and add salt if desired. The ground beef has lots of water while you cook it, and you should consider that this water will dry and the avor of the seasoning will become more pronounced. So wait to taste until all the water has evaporated.

Notes

Store leftovers in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 3 or 4 days, or freeze any unused portions for later use for up to 1 month.
Make-Ahead tip: This sauce with pasta tastes just as good the next day! Add a splash of cream and Parmesan cheese and bake in preheated oven at 200C (400F) for about 20 minutes until cheese is golden brown.
*Whichever pasta you use, make sure to cook it al dente, then rinse it with cold water, drain it, and only then add it to the sauce. This will preserve the pasta structure and prevent it from getting mushy in a creamy sauce. Or for low carb option, with Spaghetti squash.
You can also use gluten-free brown rice penne or rice noodles (also known as rice vermicelli), gluten-free lentil penne or gluten-free quinoa pasta, or any other type of gluten-free short pasta. Cook gluten-free pasta according to package instructions. Then drain and rinse with cold water to prevent gluten-free pasta from getting mushy and sticking together.

Almeida's Salted Codfish (Bacalhau) Fast2eat Recipe

Bacalhau, is a Portuguese dried, salted codfish widely used in Portuguese cuisine, also known as dry, salt-cured cod or salt-fish in other parts of the world. Before refrigeration, codfish was dried and preserved in salt to keep in the cellar.
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time10 hrs 20 mins
Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Portuguese
Servings: 4 people
Calories: 753kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 Kg Salted codfish boneless skinless
  • 4 Potato peeled, washed, and thickly sliced
  • 500 g Broccoli florets

Sauce

  • 3 Onion thinly sliced
  • 10 cloves Garlic thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup Olive oil
  • Salt (optional) to taste
  • 1/4 cup White vinegar

Instructions

  • Bacalhau (Salted Codfish) needs to be soaked overnight (or for at least 10 hours) in several changes (at least once) of fresh water to get rid of some of its salt. It’s a step that can’t be skipped or the fish will be way too salty.
  • Drain the bacalhau, rinse with fresh water. Cut into small pieces.
  • Peel the potatoes, then cut them into thick slices. This Peeler is a time saver.
  • To save time boil the water using an Electric Kettle.
  • Place the potatoes and bacalhau in a large straight-sided pot with clean boiled water. Cook for about 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are almost cooked.
  • Add the broccoli florets and cook for more 4-5 minutes.
  • Drain the bacalhau, potatoes and broccoli florets and place them in a Casserole Dish.

Sauce

  • Slice the onion and garlic. This Holder is so helpful to slice the onions and garlic.
  • While bacalhau is cooking, heat olive oil in a small Saucepan. Add thinly sliced onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until golden, about 5 minutes.
  • After golden add the White Vinegar and remove from the heat.

To serve

  • Portion desired amount into Dinner Plates, apply the sauce directly on bacalhau, potatoes and broccoli florets.
  • Complete the meal with a simple white rice. Or, as in my case, with green salad and this delicious Creamy Fancy Coleslaw

The French term for this medium-thick white sauce is béchamel.

It’s a white sauce made from butter, milk, flour and salt.

It’s the basic recipe that with a few additions can turn into a cheese sauce, and also can be used as an important base for soufflés. Béchamel (white) sauce with chicken broth is a variation of it with a mild flavor of chicken.

Bored of canned tomato sauce? This removes the acidity of the tomato and makes canned tomato sauce taste like homemade.

It’s Fast, simple and requires no chopping at all.

It’s the quickest and simplest tricks I’ve learned as a result on how to improve the flavour of canned tomato sauce.

For best results, use a canned tomato sauce that is relatively plain and good quality canned tomato sauce.
