Bolognese Sauce  Recipe

Can I Freeze Bolognese Sauce?

Yes! To freeze the sauce, make sure it’s fully cooled. Then place the sauce in an airtight container and keep it in the freezer for up to three months.

Heat the Oil

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.

Saute the Vegetables

When the oil is hot, add the onion, carrot, and celery, and cook until the vegetables are soft, about 6-7 minutes.

Add the Beef

Stir in the ground beef and garlic. Cook, stirring, until the beef is no longer pink, breaking it up as it cooks.

Add the Liquid

Add the white wine and stir to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot. 


Cook for 5-6 minutes, until the liquid has evaporated. Add the milk and bring to a simmer until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.

Add Remaining Ingredients

Stir in the crushed tomatoes, broth, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and bay leaf.


Reduce the heat to a simmer and simmer for 30 minutes to an hour.

Prepare Pasta

Meanwhile, prepare pappardelle or tagliatelle according to package instructions, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water.


Discard the bay leaf and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve!
