Recipes for Bolognese Sauce
Meaty meat sauce is important to me. Why? Because I raised three boys and this is what they preferred in their pasta sauce. Lots of meat and make that thick. And, this meaty pizza bolognese sauce had to also have certain flavors, some ingredients had to be masked (like onions) and textures.

And, I wanted all of this plus I didn’t want to have to wait hours to have it ready to serve. So, this quick and easy sauce, made in about seventy-five minutes, is pretty amazing.
Secret to Best Bolognese Sauce
You’ll see probably an ingredient in this recipe that you don’t typically associate with bolognese. And, that’s anchovy paste. Now before you start thinking, it’s gonna have a fishy taste, what you’re going to see is that anchovy paste simply adds flavor to so many things.

Yes, it’s an oftentimes overlooked flavor enhancer! It’s great in savory dishes, and you need only a small amount, because it hits on that sixth taste bud, umami! So, if you want to boost the flavor of something, whether it’s soup, stew, a rubbing base, or in this recipe, bolognese, then give the anchovy paste a chance!

Traditional Bolognese Sauce
Another nutrient booster in this recipe that you might not expect, V8 juice! While it’s not considered ‘traditional’, it is adding more flavor and nutrition. And, another way to elevate nutrition? Add ground almonds. Yes, you must check out this recipe for my almond bolognese!
Yep, you’re gonna get full servings of vegetables with juice added. And, you decide is you want regular or spicy V8. When you’re making this, you might want to double the recipe and freeze some for later uses. It’s a great base for pizza, as a chili base, lasagna, hot dog chili, tacos and more. I’m banking on you loving it! xoxo ~ally
This sauce freezes really well! Double the recipe! So many other uses for this sauce: making pizza, using as a base for chili, add frozen meatballs for more fun, topping for hot dogs, use as a meaty sauce over chicken parmesan, and more!

I really love the addition of anchovie paste .. I have always used that in my clam sauce now this sounds like one heck of a great idea and enhances the flavor.. Thanks for this delicious recipe!
Wow!! Claudia! Coming from the Goddess of Italian cooking I’m thrilled, thank you, luv! And, I’m gonna be using it in my clam sauce, too!! Thank you!! xox
I’ve always been one to hold the anchovies, Ally, but “umami” — and THIS recipe — is making me a firm believer. I also loved how you incorporated pesto into the sauce (terrific idea) and the triple meat combo… yay for your hungry boys! No need to sacrifice slow simmered flavor when you can eat THIS for dinner “sooner”! (That was an Okie reference, lol.) Good stuff, my friend! xo
Lawsy, you know how to write descriptions!! Thank you, luv! Yep, that anchovy paste takes the sauce off the charts, and you don’t know it’s in there but you realize it’s pretty amazing! Thanks for being such a fabulous food critic!! xox
