Fettuccine Bolognese

5 stars based on 1 votes

Fettucine-bolognese

Fettucine Bolognese, or pasta in a meltingly tender and richly flavored meat sauce, is one of my favorite Sunday night family meals. The sauce simmers on the stove for several hours, making the house smell delicious and inviting, and the end result is a comforting yet elegant dish…I’d even serve it to company.

Fettucine-bolognese-5

I’ll be honest, there are a lot of vegetables to chop but the job is made simple with the help of a food processor. Always cut them into large chunks before they go in, otherwise they won’t process properly.

Fettucine-bolognese-6

Start with just the onions (you don’t want to crowd the machine) and pulse until very finely chopped but not puréed.

Fettucine-bolognese-2

Transfer the onions to a bowl and then process the carrots and celery together the same way.

Fettucine-bolognese-1

Heat a bit of olive oil in a large pot and cook the vegetables and garlic until soft, about 10 minutes.

Fettucine-bolognese-12

Add the pancetta, ground beef, salt and pepper to the vegetables. Note that the recipe calls for 85% lean ground beef. Don’t be tempted to use extra lean. I’ve tried it and, believe me, it’s not nearly as good. Fat adds flavor and keeps the meat moist, plus you can skim off any excess grease at the end.

Fettucine-bolognese-17

Cook until the beef is no longer pink, about 10 minutes.

Fettucine-bolognese-7

Add the red wine and cook until the liquid dissolves. Anytime you’re cooking with wine, use one that’s cheap but good enough to drink. The recipe only calls for a half cup so, unless you’re planning to drink the rest, you might want to buy a package of mini bottles. They come in very handy in the kitchen.

Fettucine-bolognese-8

Add the crushed tomatoes, beef stock and oregano and simmer for an hour and a half.

Fettucine-bolognese-9

Add some whole milk and simmer again until the milk is absorbed into the sauce, about 35 minutes.

Fettucine-bolognese-23

When the sauce is done, spoon any excess grease off the top. Don’t worry about getting it all (it’s impossible and you don’t want to lose flavor anyway); I typically take off about 1/4 cup.

Fettucine-bolognese-24

Keep the sauce warm while you cook the pasta.

Fettucine-bolognese-13

Ladle out and reserve one cup of the pasta water, then drain the pasta in a colander. Toss the noodles with the sauce, adding the reserved cooking water little by little if it seems dry. As always, taste and adjust the seasoning before serving.

Fettucine-bolognese-22

Top with grated Parmesan and freshly chopped herbs and serve. If you’re looking for a salad to go with it, you might consider my Big Italian Salad or Arugula with Lemon & Shaved Parmesan and Olive Oil. Enjoy!

Fettucini Bolognese

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and chopped into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef (85% lean)
  • 3 ounces pancetta, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (plus more for pasta water)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 pound fresh fettucini (available in the refrigerator section of most supermarkets; see note)
  • Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, for serving (optional)
  • Handful chopped fresh basil or parsley, for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place onions in bowl of food processor fitted with metal blade. Pulse until very finely chopped but not puréed. Transfer onions to separate bowl, then add carrots and celery to food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Transfer vegetables to bowl with onions.
  2. Heat olive oil in large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and vegetable mixture and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 10 minutes. Lower the heat if vegetables start to brown.
  3. Add ground beef, pancetta, salt and pepper and cook over medium-high heat, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until meat is no longer pink, 5-10 minutes.
  4. Add red wine and cook until liquid is almost dissolved, 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add beef stock, crushed tomatoes and oregano. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover with lid slightly ajar and simmer for 45 minutes. Stir, then cover completely with lid and simmer 45 minutes more.
  6. Add milk to sauce. Cover with lid slightly ajar and simmer until milk is absorbed, about 35 minutes. If sauce looks greasy, use a soup spoon to skim some of the fat off the top. (Don't remove all of the fat; I typically take out about 1/4 cup). Cover to keep warm off the heat while you make the pasta.
  7. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Before straining, ladle out 1 cup of pasta water into a bowl or measuring cup and set aside. Drain noodles in a colander, then add them to the sauce. Toss with tongs, adding reserved pasta water little by little if sauce seems dry. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary. Serve immediately with grated Parmesan and fresh herbs if desired.
  8. Note: I like the Buitoni brand of fresh pasta sold in the refrigerator case at most supermarkets for this dish. It cooks very quickly and tastes great. If you can't find fresh, feel free to substitute dried.

  • This sounds delicious! I make a similar sauce using a rump roast but no milk and serve it over gnocchi.

    - Sandy on November 14, 2013 Reply
  • I made this 3 days ago, and it tasted better even as leftovers! I found that the smell would be optimal whenever I reduced the beef stock by 1/3 a cup, and add more Cabernet Sauvignon based on feelings (usually 1/3cup extra)!

    I’m thinking about making this for a friend who doesn’t eat pork. What substitution for the pancetta would you recommend?

We did not use fresh pasta, but opted to use dried fettucine instead. Four active teenagers consume a lot of pasta! Loved the finely chopped vegetables in the sauce, especially the carrots.

  • This is such an amazing recipe. With the three meat combination it is simply to DIE FOR. My friend Melanie and I made it the first time together, with fresh homemade pasta. Since then she has made it bi-monthly for her and her husband. I think its time to whip out my food processor and try this again!

  • I just made this for dinner and it was incredibly delicious! I’m looking forward to having the left overs tomorrow. Right now neither my husband or myself are drinking (hubby’s training to climb Mt Rainier & I’m pregnant). So I’ve been avoiding meals that call for wine, since I didn’t want to waste it. I loved your tip on the mini wine bottles … I can’t believe that solution never dawned in me before. As always, thanks for sharing your recipes & tips!!!

  • I made this delicious dish. So yummy. Since we keep kosher in the house I had to make a few adjustments. I had to eliminate the pancetta and then substituted Tofutti Sour Supreme (non dairy sour cream 1/2 cup) for the whole milk. The dish was awesome. Thank you!

  • So happy to have your website to refer to for both food recipies and baked goods. I’ve been cooking since I was young,(58 at this moment), and have always loved experimenting with foods of many cultures. Your recipies are wonderful, (so far I’ve made your French apple cake, and pumpkin bread), outstanding! The food processor would be great for me, as my hands are affected by a neurologic disorder. I’ve always done things the old school way, but I guess they chop things in half the time. Thank you for sharing so many of your recipies with us. Your pictures with the recipies are so nice, and make it easy to follow. Will be trying to do many of the baked goods for Christmas gifts this year. Most of the people in my life would rather have something made by hand, it let’s them know that they are very special to me. Thanks again.

  • This takes me back to one of my favorite childhood meals, one I haven’t had in probably a decade, spaghetti and meatsauce – but WOW this sounds and looks so much better than the ground beef and jar of prepared sauce that graced our table :). Thanks for a fantastic recipe and a fabulous give-away!

  • There’s nothing quite like an excellent bolognese. For an even earthier taste (and unabashed decadence), add chicken livers to the sauce… it is to die for! (And no, I didn’t come up with that idea all on my own, it’s a trick Barbara Lynch – a local Boston chef – uses for her amazing bolognese which is in her cookbook, Stir).

  • Being Italian, we had pasta every Sunday! But my Grandmother never made this. I hope that we can start up that tradition again and add this recipe into the mix.

  • With the hundreds (probably thousands)of cooking sources on the web, I got lucky and found “Once Upon a Chef”. I was looking for an interesting Lamb Burger recipe and, voila, your recipe appeared. What really captured my attention were your beautiful step-by-step photos, and the recipe sounds fabulous! I’m preparing it this evening.

    I look forward to reading your culinary words of wisdom, and many a beautiful dish prepared with your guidence.

    Happy Holidays from our family to yours :)
