A quick and tasty version of this classic pasta sauce using Topline Foods Organic Grass Fed Beef. It can be served over spaghetti or mixed with rigatoni and baked with mozzarella on top for a comforting casserole!
6 slices Topline Foods uncured, thick sliced bacon, diced
1 lb. Topline Foods organic grass fed ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 – 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup heavy cream (optional)
1 lb. penne or spaghetti, cooked
Grated Parmesan cheese to taste
In a 10 inch skillet, fry bacon and beef over medium-high heat until bacon is crisp and beef is brown, about 4 minutes. Drain off excess fat. Add onion, celery, and carrots and cook, stirring often, until onion is tender, about 5 minutes.
Stir in tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper. Heat to boiling, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 14 minutes.
Mix in wine and cream until well blended. Simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes longer. Serve over spaghetti and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
