Spaghetti Bolognese is a classic Italian meat sauce that is a staple in most families. My super simple Spaghetti Bolognese is the perfect dinner for any night of the week and will wow your family or guests.

  • 1 lb spaghetti uncooked
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground beef extra lean
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp oregano dried
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes (1 can)
  • 2 tbsp basil chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 tbsp basil chopped, for garnish


  • Cook the spaghetti according to package instructions. Keep the pasta water, in case needed for sauce.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or pot over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook for 3 minutes, breaking it as you go, until no longer pink.
  • Add the onion and garlic and cook for another 3 minutes until the onion softens.
  • Add the oregano, red pepper flakes, tomato paste and stir. Stir in the red wine and cook for about 5 minutes until most of the liquid has cooked off.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes, basil and season with salt and pepper. Stir and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a medium-low. Cover the pot and cook for about 20 minutes.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and adjust for seasoning if needed. If your sauce is too thick add some of the pasta water to thin it out.
  • Add the spaghetti to the pot and toss well with the sauce. Top with Parmesan cheese and basil. Serve immediately.
