Easy Bolognese Sauce


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound ground beef

1 onion, diced

3 or 4 cloves garlic, minced

28 ounce can crushed tomatoes

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

½ teaspoon red chili flakes

½ cup red wine

½ cup milk

2 teaspoons fresh basil, chopped (I used 2 basil cubes by Dorot.)


In a heavy pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add onions and sauté until soft about 5 to 7 minutes. 

Next, add in garlic and sauté until fragrant.

Add ground beef to onions and garlic.  Cook until meat is no longer pink, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and red chili flakes.

Stir in red wine and milk.

Cover and simmer on low for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

Stir in basil about 10 minutes before end of cooking time.

Serves 6 to 8.
