Working Mom's Recipe of the Week

This is an easy dish that makes enough for 2 meals. I was skeptical that my daughter would like it, but she declared this to be a "great dinner". Enjoy.

Ragu Bolognese
Servings = 8
Time = 30 min

Olive Oil
1 lb ground beef (or ground turkey)
1/2 c dry white wine or chicken broth
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 c milk
1/2 lb spaghetti
1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add beef/turkey and cook until done. Add wine, onion, carrot, celery, oregano, salt and pepper - simmer until liquid is almost all evaporated. Stir in tomatoes, with juices, and milk. Reduce heat and simmer while you cook the spaghetti. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add spaghetti. Cook to al dente then drain. Add spaghetti to skillet and mix well. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve with a side salad.
