Bolognese Sauce

Servings :

A simple sauce that is super flavourful and goes beautifully with all kinds of pastas, even works wonderfully in lasagnas!


  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 kg beef mince
  • 2-3 onions, chopped finely
  • 1 tsp. garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger paste
  • oregano (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 6-8 fresh tomatoes, blended with skin or chopped fine
  • 2-3 tbsp. tomato paste
  • chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp. chilli powder or flakes
  • 1 green chilli,chopped finely
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


Heat the oil, then fry the onions until translucent, then add the ginger and garlic pastes. Fry for a minute, then add the mince and fry on high heat until brown and crumbly. Use a wooden spoon to break any lumps in the meat.

Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar and all the herbs and spices, bring to a boil, then lower the heat and let this simmer for about an hour until most of the liquid is gone and you have a thick sauce. The longer you simmer this the tastier the results.

Once thick, turn off the heat and use! This sauce can also be frozen and used whenever needed. 🙂
