This one reminds us of the comfort of home. It has some deep flavors and features homemade pasta. For some reason, people think that they have to cook the sauce for a super long time to develop the proper flavor, but in this recipe, you will see that it can be done relatively quickly.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
Prep the Vegetables
Peel the carrots, then small dice them. Also small dice the onion and celery. Chop garlic into small pieces. To prepare for cooking the pasta, add 8 cups of water to medium sized pot and lightly salt the water. Bring to a boil.
Plate the Dish
Evenly place the hot cooked pasta into each pasta bowl. Spoon Bolognese sauce over pasta and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese. You could also drizzle with olive oil to add some richness to the dish.
Cook the Meat Sauce
Heat 2 Tbls oil in sauce pan and add ground meat. Stir meat to brown evenly and stop from clumping up for approximately 5 minutes. Next, add vegetables and nutmeg. Stir to evenly distribute spice. Then add tomatoes and all of the juice. Stir in to evenly distribute, then allow to simmer for approximately 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook the Pasta
Add pasta to boiling water, stirring occasionally so that pasta does not stick to each other. Cook for approximately 5-8 minutes. Drain cooked pasta and reserve for plate up. Note: If the pasta clumps up, before plate up, run very hot tap water over it to shake it loose again.
