(recipe for 4-6 people)

  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • ½ pound bacon diced or pancetta
  • 4 oz white wine

    (mozzarella, parmesan, asiago, ricotta)
  1. Cook sausage in a large sauce pan or rondeau, drain off grease and set aside.
  2. Crisp bacon/pancetta in pan on low heat. Once crisp, pull bacon out, set aside, and leave bacon grease in pan.
  3. Sautee onion, celery, carrots in bacon grease until tender. Put bacon and sausage back in pan. Then add tomato paste and simmer on low until slightly darkened. Remember to constantly stir during the process.
  4. Then add white wine and stir until combined then add heavy cream, thyme, oregano, grated parmesan, and marinara. Simmer on low for a few extra minutes.
  5. While the Bolognese is simmering on low, cook your favorite pasta and top it with the sauce or toss both together. Then garnish and enjoy!
