Bolognese (Meat) Sauce Fast2eat

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 favourite ingredient for those seeking a lower-carb, paleo-friendly, clean eating, gluten-free alternative to pasta.

  • 2 tbsp Oil

  • 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 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.


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.
