Beef and Sausage Ragu

Spread the love

This recipe is a mix between a ragu and a bolognese. My daughter loves, loves any kind of meat sauce over pasta. I try to make them different every time- so this one is a mix. A bolognese, typically is made with just tomato paste and milk- there is no tomato sauce. I added it all in this one- it was delicious!!

  • 2 chicken sausage links (I used spinach and fontina), casings off and crumbled
  • 1 pound grass fed ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 cups tomato sauce, preferably fresh
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • Salt

Heat a heavy saucepan with the olive oil. Add the ground beef and crumbled sausage and brown while stirring constantly on a medium high heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic, onion, carrots, rosemary and thyme. Cook on medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the paste and cook for a minute. Add the tomato sauce, chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil and lower to a simmer, cover with a lid. Cook for at least an hour and a half on low heat, stirring every 15 minutes. Take the lid off, taste for seasoning, and add salt if needed. Serve on top of cooked pasta.
