quick Bolognese sauce

  • 2 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces lean ground beef
  • 4 ounces ham, diced
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced oregano
  • 1 tablespoon minced basil
  • 3 cups tomato sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • ½ pound fresh pasta sheets, cooked to al dente and cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • fresh basil leaves


  • Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  • For quick Bolognese sauce: Pour oil into a skillet and place over medium-high heat. Add beef and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add ham and continue to sauté for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove beef and ham with a slotted spoon and drain all but 1 tablespoon fat from the skillet.
  • Place skillet back over heat and add onion and garlic and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add carrot and celery and continue to sauté for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add oregano and basil and sauté for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add meat mixture back into the skillet, along with the tomato sauce. Lower heat to simmer and cook together for about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • To assemble: Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray. Place a pasta sheet square into the bottom of each muffin well and top with a spoonful of Bolognese sauce. Top each well with a sprinkle of mozzarella and a small sprinkle of Parmesan. Repeat the process 2 more times, adding only half the amount of Bolognese on the top layer.
  • Place muffin tin into the oven and bake for 20 to 22 minutes, or until the cups fully bake through.
  • Score the perimeter of each cup with a pairing knife and allow cups to cool for about 10 minutes before popping out of the wells and serving with more Parmesan and fresh basil.
