If you love the freshly cooked sauce full of great tasting meat, served on the top your favorite pasta, you will like the idea of making your homemade bolognese sauce to share with your family tonight.
Following the traditional recipe, the bolognese sauce should be cooked using a ground beef. I cook my own variation of the sauce. I use a ground veal meat to cook the bolognese sauce. As a result of using a veal meat, the sauce is tasting much smoother.
I always use a freshly ground veal, instead of the ready to use, packaged in the food store one. I cook the ground veal with a pureed plum tomatoes. In the summer, juicy, ripe tomatoes can substitute for the tomato puree. Peel and cut roughly the fresh tomatoes before adding them to the ground meat.
Simmering slowly, adding the ingredients gradually, one by one and seasoning slightly, is the secret of making your perfect, fresh and aromatic bolognese sauce.
Serve your bolognese sauce on the top of your favorite pasta. For me, the combination of bolognese sauce and freshly cooked spaghetti or spaghettini /the thinner ones/, sprinkled with a freshly grated parmesan cheese makes dinner perfect anytime.
I hope you’ll get inspired by my bolognese sauce recipe. I’d be more than happy if you leave me your comments below.
How To Make Bolognese Sauce - Delicious Spaghetti Dinner
I guess, there is nothing simpler than cooking a fresh pasta sauce to serve as your main dish at dinner. If you like pasta sauces which combine meat and tomatoes you can enjoy your chicken tomato sauce tonight. I use chicken breasts to make this pasta sauce. There are two options when it comes to adding tomatoes to your sauce. The most of the year I use canned plum tomatoes, which taste great. I puree them but I don’t like to make a very smooth tomato puree for this purpose. I puree the tomatoes with a couple of shots only. As a result of that, the consistensy of the tomato puree is coarse, containing the larger pieces of tomatoes.
In the summer when there are fresh, juicy and bright red tomatoes available, I use a couple of them to make this sauce tasting differently. I peel and chop them roughly before I add them to the chicken. To peel the tomato skin easily, immerse the fresh tomatoes in the hot water for 30 seconds first. I cook the sauce for a couple of minutes more, then I remove the sauce pan from the heat, to keep the tomatoes as fresh as possible.
The main ingredients I use following my chicken tomato sauce recipe is chicken, plum tomatoes and a heavy cream. Adding the heavy cream at the end of cooking, helps to make the sauce smoother and tasting delicious. To use one clove of crushed garlic is enough, as we want just to enhance the flavour of the sauce slihtly. Also, adding the ingredients gradually, one by one, helps to improve the final taste of your sauce.
Serve your chicken tomato sauce on the nest of your favorite either dried or fresh pasta. I found it the best to serve tagliatelle with this sauce. Sprinkle the pasta with a freshly grated parmesan cheese over the top before serving. Finally drizzle with olive oil if you prefer.
I hope you’ll enjoy cooking your chicken tomato pasta sauce. I’d be more than happy if you leave me your comments below.
