Hungry for More: Bolognese sauce


Last week on “Hungry for More,” we brought you Homemade Roasted Garlic Spinach Pasta, and this week we bring you the perfect sauce to go along with it.
Host Jim Manney is back at the Beefsteak Club with Chef Scott Motschenbacher to show us a Bolognese Sauce.
This sauce is made with fresh garlic, red wine, stewed tomatoes and a crowd favorite – bacon.
Chef Motschenbacher also uses a homemade demi-glace, but says beef stock will do the trick as well.
With just 10 minutes max cooking time, paired with the easy-to-make fresh pasta, it’ll be hard to go back to the boxed and jarred stuff.
A little extra effort goes a long way.

Bolognese Sauce
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh garlic
¼ cup red wine
4 ounces applewood bacon (diced)
2 cups stewed tomatoes
1 cup demi-glace or beef stock

Sauté garlic in butter and oil just until roasted. Deglaze with red wine. Add bacon. Cook for three to five minutes. Add tomatoes and demi-glace, and reduce by a third. Add fresh pasta and toss; garnish with fresh Parmesan.
