Veal Bolognese Sauce

By In The Kitchen With Stefano Faita


3 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 small carrots, finely diced
2 celery ribs, finely diced
1 pound ground veal
1 can (28-ounce) diced tomatoes
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup whipping cream (35 %) (optional)
Handful chopped fresh parsley (optional)


In a Dutch oven, heat the butter and the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté. When the onions have softened, add the carrots and celery. Continue cooking for 4 to 5 minutes.

Add the ground veal and cook until meat begins to brown and vegetables are tender, another 5 to 7 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Bring sauce to a boil and then reduce heat and let simmer until thick and flavourful, about 20 to 30 minutes. If using cream, add and let cook for another 5 minutes. Stir in chopped parsley.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
