Beef Bolognese

I am going to make this for my in-laws tomorrow night and realized I had never put it up on the blog. This is a easy and a delicious pasta dish. It's one of our family favorites. Enjoy.

A recipe from "The Italian Kitchen" by Gabriella Mariotti

This recipe makes enough sauce for 1 lb of pasta. Our favorite is Rotini.

1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2/3 cup beef stock
12 ounces extra lean ground beef
1/2 cup red wine
2 tablespoons tomato paste
14 ounce can chopped tomatoes or fresh tomatoes skinned and chopped
1/2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 tsp ground allspice
salt and ground black pepper

Cook the onion and garlic in the stock for 5 minutes or until all the stock is reduced.
Add the beef and cook quickly to brown, breaking up the meat with a fork.
Add the wine, tomato paste, chopped tomatoes, rosemary and allspice,
bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour.
Adjust the seasoning to taste.

Mix sauce with one pound of cooked pasta. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve with a green salad or your choice of vegetable and a glass of red wine.
