OMG Bolognese Sauce and Parmesan & Garlic Salad Dressing



  • ½ cups Olive Oil
  • 1-½ cup Grated Carrots
  • 1 whole Large Red Onion, Diced
  • 2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 4 Tablespoons of Italian Seasoning
  • 1 handful of fresh Basil
  • 1 can (6 Ounce) Tomato Paste
  • 5 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 cup (to 2 Cups) Red Wine*I tend to go for two or more cups....if you don't want wine don't worry about it*
  • 2 cans (28 Ounce) Whole Tomatoes
  • 1 jar of Strained Tomatoes
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup of Parmesan
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Fresh Parmesan Cheese

Preparation Instructions

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add grated carrots and onions and cook for a few minutes. Make a well in the center of the mixture, and then add in the ground beef. Cook for a few minutes until brown, gradually stirring it into the carrot mixture.

Throw in the Italian seasoning and basil. Use fresh if you have it; if you don’t, it’s fine. When the meat is browned and combined with other ingredients, make another well. Add tomato paste and let it heat. Add garlic and stir to combine.  Add about 1 or 2 tablespoons of salt and about 1 tablespoon of pepper.
Make a well in the center of the mixture and add red wine. Stir together. Add canned tomatoes. Finally, pour in milk and Parmesan cheese, stir, and let simmer for 30 minutes to 2 hours—however long you need.  I always give it a little taste before as serve sometimes I find it needs more salt so it all depends on your taste

Serve with pasta and a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
