Nothing fancy today, just an ordinary Penne with Balognese but nothing beats the simple home-made one isn't it? I cooked the penne as per directed in the package then prepared the sauce without adding pork, tomato paste, and carrots.
500g ground beef
2-3 large fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 glass red wine
salt and pepper
Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, Saute onions, garlic, and celery until cook. Add the ground beef, continue sauteing until cook. Season with salt and pepper. Add the wine and fresh tomatoes, and continue cooking over low heat for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sauce thickens. Add the parsley and stir well.
Place the penne on a plate, put the sauce on top. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.
