Easy Bolognese Style Sauce

This rich and flavorful meat and tomato sauce is inspired by the classic Bolognese sauce, originating in Bologna, Italy. The variations to this sauce are endless, but always include finely minced onions, carrots and celery, also known as sofritto.

Makes: 6 cups sauce; 8 servings, 6 ounces each

Utensil: Saladmaster Food Processor & 5 Qt./4.7 L Roaster with Cover



1 onion, strung, use Cone #2

4 cloves garlic, shredded, use Cone #1

3 celery stalks, finely minced

2 carrots, trimmed, scrubbed and julienned, use Cone #2

1 pound lean ground beef

1 pound ground Italian sausage

6 ounces tomato paste

1 cup dry red wine 

1 teaspoon dried basil

1⁄4 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped

Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


1. Preheat roaster over medium heat. When several drops of water sprinkled in roaster skitter and dissipate, approximately 7 - 9 minutes, add onions, garlic, celery and carrots. Sauté for 10 - 12 minutes until vegetables are softened and lightly caramelized.


2. Add ground beef and sausage. Place cover on roaster. When Vapo-Valve™ begins to click steadily, reduce heat to low and cook 20 - 30 minutes, until meat is cooked through.


3. Stir and break meat up with spoon. Add tomato paste, dry red wine and basil. Place cover back on roaster and cook over low heat for 40 - 50 minutes.


4. Add parsley, salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.


5. Serve sauce with thick tagliatelle, pappardelle or tube style pastas such as rigatoni or penne.


Minestrone Soup

Tomatoes can be harsh on the digestive system, so opting for the creamy, rich and nourishing texture of butternut squash is a much better option. It loads this soup full of vitamins and minerals.

Along with all the other veggies, whole grain pasta and beans, this soup eats like a meal! And also tastes great the next day.

Makes: 12 full servings

Utensil: Saladmaster Food Processor & 7 Qt./6.6 L Roaster with Cover



1 large Spanish onion, strung, use Cone #2

4 cups water

1 dry bay leaf

1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed 3 medium parsnips, peeled and sliced

1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed

3 stalks celery, strung, use Cone #2

1 medium zucchini, cut into cubes

1 bunch chard, roughly chopped

1 cup cooked kidney beans

1⁄2 cup cooked brown rice macaroni (optional)

1. Sauté onion, garlic and salt in roaster over medium heat until soft.


2. Add oregano and sauté a few more minutes. Add water and bay leaf.


3. Add squash, parsnips and sweet potato. Cover and wait approximately 10 minutes, then add celery and zucchini. Cover and cook.
