A simple, comforting sauce is perfect on one of these chilly days we’ve been having so I’m whipping up an ESSENTIAL recipe, an EASY BOLOGNESE SAUCE! I love how versatile this recipe is, so feel free to make it your own and switch up ingredients with what you have on hand. This is great for batch-cooking and meal prep as well and makes a great topping on your favorite gluten-free pasta, spaghetti squash, or atop some sauteéd greens. There are so many ways to use this delicious, protein-packed sauce… so don’t feel stuck in a box!
As for the meat… you can literally use whatever you like! I’d just say to salt it and bring it to room temperature for the best, most tender result if you have the extra few minutes. My favorite meat to use is bison which is pictured here… but something more neutral like turkey and chicken meat is also fabulous since the sauce will be very flavorful regardless. And if you’re feeling extra fancy, doing a mix of meats like pork and beef is also a creative way to add more flavor (similar to classic Italian meatballs which are usually 2-3 different types of meat!).
For meal prepping, simply store in the fridge for about a week, and get creative with how you use it as I mention above so you don’t get sick of it (like you ever could…).
Hope you enjoy!

This recipe was SO good! Also easy to make. At the end I sprinkled some vegan Parmesan and made a great dish for our date night in. Thanks, Alison!
ooh delish! so stoked you enjoyed it.
I love this! Would this recipe work with an alternative meat? I have ground vegan “beef” in my freezer!
I haven’t tried but don’t see why not!
This looks so good. I can’t wait to try it!
This is our families favourite meal. I love the paleo twist on it.
Lovely bolognese sauce. It was great with a simple boiled pasta for dinner. 🙂
What a great sauce. I love adding the vegetables into it.
