The crew of Vegeta’s kitchen enjoyed watching how in a shop and trattoria “Annamaria” in Bologna under the master’s hands torteline, gnocchi, canelloni, lasagne, tagliatelle... were created. And afterwards, who would fail to taste them with ragout alla bolognese?

Ingredients

  • 400 g pasta (wide noodles, macaroni, spaghetti or gnocchi)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 30 g butter
  • 250 g minced beef
  • 50 g dried bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 20 g celery root
  • 150 g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon double tomato concentrate
  • 2 chicken liver
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • nutmeg
  • origano
  • bay leaf
  • 100 ml white vine
  • 1 tablespoon Vegeta

Preparation

  1. 1.
    Chop the bacon, onion and garlic. Grate the carrot and the celery.
  2. 2.
    In the pan (with thick bottom) heat up the oil and sauté the meat. After that add bacon, onion, carrot, celery and garlic and sauté all together briefly.
  3. 3.
    Stir in the chopped tomatoes, some salt, Vegeta and sauté for another 10 minutes.
  4. 4.
    Add tomato concentrate, grated nutmeg, origano, bay leaf, freshly ground pepper and vine.
  5. 5.
    Cook slowly for about an hour, adding water occasionally as needed. Near the end of cooking add chopped chicken liver.

Serving

Pour the ready sauce over cooked pasta and serve with grated Parmesan cheese.

Advice

For the sauce use meat which you minced once with wide holes.

Little secret

Add chicken liver near the end of cooking so they would not become dry, and at the same time they will provide enough aroma for the sauce.

Notice

This meal can also be frozen
Freezing: Prepare the bolognese sauce per recipe (without adding chicken liver), chill it and distribute into portions and put into freezing.
Unfreezing: Put some water into the dish, add frozen sauce, cover and heat up over slow fire. During that time cook the pasta as desired.
Durability: to 60 days.
