BOLOGNESE SAUCE a la All Spiced Up
1 large onion
1 medium carrot
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 pounds ground beef
1 pound ground pork
1/2 cup dry white wine (we like Vino Seco)
1 cup broth (beef or veggie works best)
2 (28 oz) cans crushed tomatoes
3 Tablespoons tomato paste
1 Tablespoon T.O.P. Secret Italian
3 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
Pulse onion and carrot in a food processor. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in small skillet and cook veggies at medium high heat for about 10 minutes.
Heat remaining olive oil in large saucepan and brown the meats. Strain to remove fat drippings.
Mix veggies with meats and add remaining ingredients. Simmer, uncovered, for about an hour. Finish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and serve over pasta.
