Holland House(R) 0

"What a difference adding meat and red wine makes to everyday pasta sauce! Leftover roast beef and Holland House Red Cooking Wine work wonders to boost flavor. Add both to your favorite jarred pasta sauce or make our hearty pasta sauce -- a Bolognese-style ragu that is traditionally served with wide noodles."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Coarsely chop, or shred by hand, enough cooked roast beef to make 1-1/2 cups. If meat is cold, cut into chunks and warm slightly in microwave to make hand-shredding easier.
  2. Heat olive oil in a 4-quart pot and gently cook garlic, basil, oregano and rosemary about 3 minutes. Stir in the 1-1/2 cups beef and tomato paste. Add tomato sauce, red cooking wine, brown sugar and cinnamon or nutmeg, stirring until smooth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 30-40 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in half & half. Serve over pasta, sprinkled with cheese if desired.

This recipe was very good. Tangy and flavourful. I omitted one can of the tomato paste and the half/half cream only because I did not have them and the recipe still tasted good. I also cooked it with abut 250g ground beef instead of left over meat.
