Spaghetti bolognese


2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 celery rib, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
ᄑ pound ground beef, 80% lean
6 oz. ground Italian sausage, sweet or spicy
1 cup red wine, see note 1
18 oz can ground/crushed tomatoes, see note 2
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, or 1/4 tsp dry
1 teaspoon fresh sage, or 1/4 tsp dry
Salt/Pepper, to taste
12 oz. spaghetti, (3/4 of a 1 lb. box.)
Fresh parsley, to garnish
Parmesan cheese, to garnish

Instructions :
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan.
Add the onions, carrots, and celery and cook until softened. About 5 minutes.
Add the ground beef and sausage. Cook and crumble until browned and cooked through, about 7-10 minutes. Add the garlic during the last minute.
Deglaze the pan with the wine and use a silicone spatula to “clean” the bottom of the pot.
Add the tomatoes and seasonings. Let simmer for one hour, partially covered.
Taste it and season with salt and pepper if desired.
Cook the spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain well. Use kitchen tongs to toss the spaghetti into the saucepan with the pasta sauce.
Garnish with fresh parsley and Parmesan cheese and serve!
