This 30-minute Easy Bolognese Sauce recipe makes it possible to enjoy Bolognese on a weeknight thanks to store-bought marinara sauce. This recipe is easy, economical, and makes enough to feed a hungry crowd.
In a large skillet or Dutch oven pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the pancetta, and cook until slightly crispy. Add the carrots, celery, and onion. Sauté until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
Add in the ground beef, breaking up the meat as you stir, and cook until browned.
Stir in the marinara sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Let the sauce simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened.
Once the sauce has simmered for 30 minutes, stir in the heavy cream.
Serve immediately with the cooked pasta. Garnish each serving with grated parmesan cheese.
The key to the best incorporation for the soffritto (celery, carrot, and onion) is to finely mince the vegetables. For quick mincing, use a food processor or box grater.
