Bolognese Sauce

Others will think that you’ve been in the kitchen all day making this easy lamb bolognese. Thick, rich, meaty and full of flavor! Pasta will be divine!

Besides being easy and ‘quick’, this bolognese sauce can have multiple uses. Want lasagna? Here you go, the sauce. Need a quick pizza sauce. Here you go, thick n’ rich. Just add your toppings. Need soup base. Well, look no further, this sauce can save your some time. Oh, you’re thinking chili? Yes, this can be the beginning of your luscious creation!

Beef Bolognese

Bolognese can be made with different types of meats. Beef bolognese might be most popular. But, my ‘take a lot of time and cook all day’ bolognese isn’t made with just one type of meat. In fact, it’s truly amazingly delicious, but it does take time to make. In case you want to have something to serve that’s this spectacular, then here’s the recipe. 

But, I don’t always have the time to invest in my ‘takes most all day’ bolognese recipe, so that’s why I’ve created this easy bolognese recipe. 

Lamb Ragu

Is there a difference between the words ragu and bolognese. Well, ragu basically means recipes where you used minced, chopped or ground meat. You’re going to saute vegetables, like your carrots, celery and onions. And, then you’ll add it to your meat or meats. Lamb ragu and bolognese are uniquely alike! 

Bolognese Recipe Easy

Who doesn’t love a rich thick flavorful bolognese? And, one that is relatively quick and easy to make?

While I have a couple of other bolognese recipes on my website that are dynamite killer good, I wanted to create one that took less time and had fewer ingredients. But had all the power and punch that you want when you think Italian bolognese. Plus, I wanted to do it with ground lamb, so here you go ‘easy lamb bolognese’!

Lamb Bolognese Recipe

Grab your ingredients. Pull out the food processor. Put a big stock pot on the stove. And, in a couple of hours you’re gonna be doing a kitchen happy dance. This lamb bolognese recipe is super easy. Have your pasta ready because you’ll be chowing down in no time.

It’s really hard to believe you get this flavor without much effort or work. And, if you want to use another type or types of ground meat, instead of lamb and beef, have at it. The addition of genoa salami adds a tad of fat for more flavor. Trust me, your family will put you on a pedestal and your friends will think you’re a real chef!

The Absolute Best Bolognese Recipe

As I said, I’ve got several bolognese recipes. And, the absolute best bolognese recipe is hard to choose. But, take a look at some of these options. Here’s my recipe that Gallo Family Vineyards selected as their favorite!
