Pasta Bolognese


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1 medium carrot, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon bolognese seasoning
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound ground beef or plant-based ground beef (such as Impossible Burger or Beyond Burger)
½ cup dry red wine, beef broth, or vegetable broth
1 28-oz. can crushed tomatoes
Cooked spaghetti for serving
Grated Parmesan cheese for serving
Fresh basil for serving


  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrot, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic, bolognese seasoning, and salt and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, until fragrant.
  2. Increase heat to high. Add the beef or plant-based alternative and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until well browned.
  3. Add the wine, scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the pot, and bring to a simmer. Simmer until slightly reduced, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for at least 10 minutes and up to an hour to develop the flavors, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve over pasta with grated parmesan cheese on top.
