Posted on

My husband chose that we have this for supper tonight, so I am going to share this recipe with you.  It is delicious and so easy.  It is better if it is allowed to simmer so make it earlier in the day to be enjoyed for dinner. Enjoy.

Michele’s Spaghetti Bolognese

2 Tbsp olive oil

5 slices of bacon finely sliced

1 pound ground beef

1 pound ground pork

1 onion chopped

4 carrots finely chopped

5 stalks of celery finely chopped

1 pound of mushrooms sliced

1 red pepper chopped

5 cloves of garlic finely minced

1/4 tsp hot pepper flakes

2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp dried basil

2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp dried thyme

3 bay leaves

1/2 cup red wine

2 bottles of tomato sauce

1 pound gluten-free spaghetti

Add rest of ingredients and simmer over low heat for 1 hour until sauce has reduced a bit or place cover on pot and put in a 325 degree oven and cook for 2 hours. Once sauce is well cooked, boil salted water and add pasta.  Cook according to package directions.  Serve pasta and sauce and sprinkle cheese over top.  The longer the sauce cooks the better it is.  Hope you enjoy.  Try this recipe out and let me know how it is.  Cheers, Michele
