Spicy Bolognese
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground sirloin
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 28-ounce can tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • freshly grated parmesan cheese
  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the ground sirloin and cook until the meat has started to brown, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes and cook for one more minute.
  2. Pour in the wine to deglaze the bottom of the pan, scraping up all of the yummy brown bits.
  3. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes.
  4. Add the heavy cream and basil, and simmer for an additional 10 minutes, until thickened.
  5. Toss with spaghetti noodles and parmesan cheese.
