Mushroom & Beef Spaghetti Bolognese

Cutting back on the beef and bulking up with mushrooms makes this version of a classic Bolognese hearty without being heavy.  Our sauce delivers the fresh ingredients that you’ll need for great flavor.  Make it yours with some red wine and a touch of cream.

How to Make It

Step 1

Season the beef as desired.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the beef, mushrooms, carrots and garlic and cook until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.

Step 2

Increase the heat to high.  Add the wine and heat to a boil.  Boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Reduce the heat to medium.  Add the sauce and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Stir in the half and half.  Season to taste.  Add the spaghetti and toss to coat.  Serve with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.

    this recipe lacks flavor

    I find this recipe to be watery. Not a thick sauce. The beef broth does not add anything to the flavor. Actually I don't think it is needed. Since the mushroom and carrot naturally give off some water as they are cooked. It would be a good idea to cook it a little longer to make the sauce thicker. Definitely needs some added spices.
