    Lamb & Veal Bolognese (Cheat Day Meal)

    Here's a recipe for a cheat day. It's terrible for you, pure pasta/butter/cheese crap but it's delicious. Will most likely be our next free cheat meal. Takes 2-3 hours to prepare. The longer it cooks the better it is.


    1/2lb ground veal

    1/2lb ground lamb

    Olive oil

    Red pepper flakes


    2 cups red wine

    1/4 stick butter

    1/4 c heavy cream

    1/2 c grated Parmesan

    1/4 tsp thyme

    2 bay leaves

    1.5 tbsp good tomato paste


    1 can San marzano tomatoes

    1/2 c white onion

    1/4 c carrots

    6 clove garlic

    1 tsp salt

    1 1/2 tbsp sugar

    1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

    1/4 tsp basil

    1lb of thin pasta, preferably pappardelle or another like farfalle or fettucine or tagliatelle



    Puree onion, garlic, carrots in food processor until fine. Sautee onion, garlic, carrot in olive oil in medium pot for approx 10-15 minutes until it starts turning opaque. While this is sauteing, put tomatoes, salt, sugar, pepper in food processor and lightly pulse until the tomatoes have a moderate consistency. Add tomato sauce to onion blend and turn to medium-low heat to simmer for approx 40 minutes, stirring frequently, until it thickens.

    Preparing Bolognese:

    Heat olive oil in large deep skillet on medium high heat. Break up veal and lamb in skillet with wood spatula until finely chopped. Cook until thoroughly browned, stirring continually to keep it from burning. Add a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes, cook for another minute. Drain off extra fat with a fine colander. Place meat back into skillet, add in wine, thyme, and bay leaves. Bring to simmer, simmer until reduced and there is very little liquid left. Add in marinara sauce, simmer until thickened.

    At this point, start boiling the water for the pasta

    Once the sauce is thickened remove the bay leaves. Stir in the cream, butter, and grated cheese. Bring to simmer, then remove from the heat. Add cooked pasta to sauce

    That sound pretty fire man. Using wine in your pasta is always the way to go. Can you believe theres people that that meal would be very healthy for though? lol The state I live in ranks #3 fattest in America and #2 for diabeties. That meal would be the first time they ate something that did not come prepacked or handed to them out of a drive thru window.
