Our Favorite Bolognese Sauce

Make a batch today, then keep some in your fridge and freezer for a quick, easy meal later in the week.

Simple, cozy & yummy!

Nothing better than a big bowl of pasta!

I’ve partnered with Whole Foods and Whole Foods Fairfield County to share one of our favorite easy Dinner Hacks… we always have a stash of my sons favorite Bolognese Sauce in the refrigerator  fridge and freezer ready to heat up when the boys come home from school or practices ravenous.  It’s a quick, satisfying hot meal with minimal effort.

Recipe from my Italian mother-in-law, it’s just 1 onion, fresh 85% lean ground beef (new low price Whole Foods!), white wine, tomato purée, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and spices. It takes only 30 minutes to make,the house smells amazing while it simmers, and it makes a large batch.

Note: We store the prepared sauce in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. We store in the freezer for up to a month.  When we freeze it, always let the sauce cool before putting in containers and leave some room at the top of the container because sauce expands when it freezes.
