Have you ever had Bolognese Sauce on your pasta? If you haven’t, it’s a hearty, chunky sauce that includes several types of meats and vegetables. Made from scratch, it’s amazingly delicious and can also set you back a good hour with all the prep work involved. I’ve made it the long way before, but I thought I’d create a 25 Minute Pasta Bolognese Dinner for busy families who are looking for a satisfying meal amid the weekday chaos.
25 Minute Pasta Bolognese Dinner
This recipe is super simple because it only has five ingredients (six if you count your pasta) and the pasta cooks while you make the sauce. I love these pasta dinners because they are so fast and easy to make! I don’t know about you, but once my kids get home from school the house is just one step away from chaos~ I’m trying to help my boys with their homework, keep my toddler from distracting them, all while trying to cook dinner. (My kids get home from school very late in the afternoon.)
Bolognese sauce works great with just about any pasta; in these photos I’ve used linguine. While waiting for your pasta water to boil, simply saute some chopped bacon, then add chopped carrot, Italian sausage and ground beef in a large skillet on medium high. Once the ground meets are completely cooked through, stir in 1/2 a jar (about 1 and 1/2 cups) of your favorite tomato based pasta sauce. Cook for another minute or two until the sauce is heated. Your pasta should be done by now; drain and serve with your quick Bolognese sauce and top with freshly grated Parm. Rest your weary feet and enjoy spending more time with your family and less time in the kitchen!
You will seriously love this Bolognese sauce! The bacon, sausage and carrot really give great flavor to this sauce. It’s so nice to have fresh, from scratch tasting Italian food that will feed a family of six no problem. I hope you find this recipe helpful and delicious. Enjoy!
