from 1 vote
large frying pan
tomatoes - canned, crushed
(500 grams) Optional, see discussion to make this vegetarian.
Add more if you love garlic like I do!
red pepper, diced
salt and pepper, to taste
Substitute water if you don't have red wine.
Add onion and olive oil to the hot frying pan. Sautee onion for 3 minutes. Stir regularly so onion doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Add the ground beef to the pan and stir the onion and ground beef together in the pan for a few minutes until the beef was all broken up and was no longer pink.
Then add in the garlic and dried herbs and stir everything together constantly for about 1 minute.
Before the garlic starts to brown, add in the tomatoes, red wine (or water), salt, pepper, and sugar. Stir while bringing all ingredients to the boil, then immediately turn the heat down to low.
Allow the sauce to simmer slowly for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. During this time, the sauce will begin the thicken a little as some of the moisture evaporates.
After about 20 minutes, boil a large pot of lightly salted water on the stove if you’re going to serve the sauce over gluten free pasta. When the water has boiled, add the pasta and cook.
At the same time as I put the salted water on to boil in preparation for the gluten free pasta, I added the grated carrot, grated zucchini, and finely diced red pepper (capsicum) to the sauce.
The last 10 minutes of simmer time is all that the carrot, zucchini, and red pepper need to ‘catch up’ to the rest of the ingredients.
Add fresh basil to the sauce just before serving.
Serve the pasta sauce on the pasta and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Other vegetables you can add into the sauce if you wish:
Sliced green beans
Small broccoli and/ or cauliflower florets
Finely diced button squash
Snow peas (mange tout)
Large red chillies (if you like it spicy!)
Finely sliced celery
