Easy Ragu Sauce
I love a good meat sauce. What’s not to love, it’s hearty stick to your ribs kinda food. Sometimes though I don’t have the time that my beloved BOLOGNESE sauce takes to make. No fear our easy Italian Ragu Sauce comes to the rescue. It takes about 1/4 of the time that our Bolognese sauce takes to make and tastes out of this world.
It starts with Johnsonville’s sweet Italian ground sausage, which has a lot of flavor packed right in there. What does that mean besides it tastes amazing? That means there’s less spices we have to the pot. Win. Win.
Then we’re going to add the rest of the ingredients to the party pot. We’ll lower the temperature and let it simmer away for about an hour. Stirring here and there (unless you have one of those automatic pot stirrers which I don’t really get. Are they worth it? Isn’t that your kids are for?) If you happen to have more time, let it ride (just add a little more liquid when the levels start to drop).
If you’re growing impatient because your house smells amazing and you just HAVE to toss it with the pasta of your choosing then I say go for it. Who am I to come between you and your bowl of bliss.
If you’re feeling frisky, double the recipe and then freeze/save the rest to make a lasagna, baked pasta dish or just to spoon into your mouth as a snack. Options. You know we love them (and YOU!)
