Directions

Every year, for Christmas, my father in law receives a very nice gift box from his work, and this year it happened to be filled with Italian products. All sorts of herbs, pasta, an oven stone for pizza (I can’t wait to try this one out), tomato paste, pesto and I could go on and on like this. So now that we actually had time to unpack and look at all of them I decided to make my very quick and delicious pasta Bolognese recipe.

I know that usually people go for spaghetti with minced meat, but I like to try new kinds of pasta everytime I cook this recipe and trust me, the corazones with vegetables were just amazing. And I also know that there are millions of recipes for Bolognese, some of them are very rich and require a long time of preparation time, and some of them, just like mine, are easy to make and totally free of fuss. So if you just came from work and you don’t know what to throw in the pan, or you want a quick solution to a nice dinner, this is THE ONE. 

TIP: to make it quicker try to make all the steps in between each other, while you are making the sauce start browning the meat, and while the meat and tomato sauce is at the last stage of simmering start cooking the pasta.

Steps

The Sauce

If you don't have a pasta sauce (mine was Tomatoes and Basil from Napolina) you can very easily make it yourselves. If you want to spare some time, just buy one premade, but try to get something as simple as you can, because you don't want too many flavours in this recipe. This time I wanted to try the gifted one, but usually I do it like this: add the oil to a pan and let it heat. Add the crushed garlic, basil and oregano and mix for 1 minute until the flavours are released. Pour the tomato paste in the herbs mixture and dissolve with 1 tbsp of water. Mix well until combined. Add the tomato sauce and the diced tomatoes, adjust with salt and pepper and let it simmer for 15 min. Remove from the stove and let it cool off for 10 min.

The Meat

Heat oil in a pan and fry the diced onion until soft. Brown the meat and use a spatula to crumble it in the pan. Remove the meat and drain the fat. Don't discard.

Put the raw carrot and the paprika in the blender and blend until you obtain small chunks of vegetables. Add the fat from the meat to the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes until all the juices come out. Pour half of the the tomato sauce in the pan and stir until combined. Add the meat and 1 cup of beef stock, mix and let it simmer for 10 min. After 10 minutes remove the lid and add another cup of stock and the other half of tomato sauce. Repeat until you incorporated all the broth. This way you can see if your sauce becomes too liquid and you can adjust the volume to you own taste.

Done

The Pasta

Bring a pan on water to boil and add salt. Make it pretty salty, because the pasta needs it. Put the pasta in and cook according to the package or until tender. Mine said 7 minutes for al dente and 10 for "well-made". I like mine tender so I let them be in there, tested one after 9 minutes and it was just enough. Discard the water, drain the pasta and divide into 4 plates. Add 2-3 big spoons of sauce with minced meat, grate some parmesan on top and that's it. Buon appetito!
