Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe

Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe


  • 1 pound (450g) ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup red wine (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound (450g) spaghetti
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for serving


1. Brown the Ground Beef:

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until it's no longer pink. Break it apart with a spoon as it cooks. Drain any excess fat and set aside.

2. Sauté the Vegetables:

In the same skillet, add the chopped onion, minced garlic, carrot, and celery. Sauté until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

3. Add Tomatoes and Seasonings:

Stir in the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, red wine (if using), dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

8. Serve:

Serve the Bolognese sauce over cooked spaghetti. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves if desired. Enjoy!
