The Tease
If your gal likes beef, she will love, love, love this.
Bolognese sauce (ragù alla bolognese in Italian, also known by its French name, sauce bolognaise) is a meat based sauce for pasta that originated in Bologna, Italy. Bolognese sauce is sometimes thought to be a tomato sauce, but authentic recipes have only a very small amount of tomato, perhaps a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste.

• 2 tablespoons of olive oil

• 1 medium onion, chopped

• 1 lb. ground beef

• 1 small carrot, diced

• 1 stalk celery, diced

• 1 cup dry white wine

• 1/2 cup milk

• 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

• 1 small can crushed tomatoes

• 1 cup beef broth

• 3 tablespoons of tomato paste

• 1 teaspoon salt

• 1 teaspoon basil

• 1/2 teaspoon thyme

• 1/8 teaspoon pepper

• 1 bay leaf

• Non-stick skillet

• Measuring cups and spoons

Preparation (Do it!)
1. Heat oil in 12-inch, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute 5 minutes.

2. Add beef and cook for about 5 more minutes.

3. Stir in carrot and celery and cook 5 minutes.

4. Stir in wine and cook until evaporated, about 5 minutes.

5. Stir in milk and nutmeg; reduce heat to medium-low and cook until milk is evaporated, about 5 minutes.

7. Serve with your favorite pasta and lots of Parmesan cheese!

I just discovered this site (love the idea!) and made this dish tonight for a date and I. I'm a pretty amateur cook, but this came out excellent!
