30 Minute Bolognese Sauce

30 Minute Bolognese-3

Short on time? Make this 30 minute Bolognese Sauce. It is a simplified version of classic bolognese sauce that is loaded with beef. The ratio of ground beef to tomato is definitely more beef heavy than most bolognese recipes, but I love this hearty beefy sauce. And since I used 92% ground beef, this bolognese is big on taste but on low on fat.

30 Minute Bolognese-2

You can even double – or triple – this recipe without adding much additional preparation time. So feed a crowd, or make extra to freeze and eat later. I served my bolognese with some fresh pasta that I picked up at the grocery store, but it is also great on pizza, and I have used it to make Zucchini Lasagna too!

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 5
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 cup chopped White Onion
  • 16 ounces Pre-Brands 92% Ground Beef
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ¼ tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 cloves of Garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 (28 ounce) can of Crushed San Marzano Tomatos
  • 1 tbsp. Tomato Paste
  • ¼ cup Parmesan or Pecorino
  1. Start with cooking the onion. Head the olive oil in a medium sized pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, this will take about 4 minutes.
  2. Add the beef and season with the garlic, salt, and pepper. Use a wooden spoon to incorporate the garlic, salt, and pepper into the beef, and to break the beef up into small pieces.
  3. After about 5 minutes the beef should be almost fully cooked. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and cheese. Bring to a slow simmer, and let simmer and reduce for 20 minutes.
  4. Serve with your favorite pasta.

This recipe is part of my collaboration with PRE Brands Beef, and you can find a version of this recipe on the back of their 92% Ground Beef packaging! And you can learn where to purchase PRE Brands grass-fed beef, which is free of added antibiotics and hormones, here.
