A deep, flavorful bolognese, aka red sauce with meat, that has slow cooked for eight hours allowing the flavors to blend into the perfect spaghetti topping. Filled with bright tomatoes and spicy Italian sausage, this is the best sauce you'll ever make--AND with the least amount of effort.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large carrot, finely diced
  • 1 yellow onion, finely diced
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Hunt's Basil, Garlic and Oregano tomato paste
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup dry red wine
  • ⅔ cup full fat coconut cream
  • Two 28-ounce cans Hunt's Basil, Garlic and Oregano crushed tomatoes
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • Gluten-free pasta, for serving
  • Fresh basil for garnish
  1. Pour all of the ingredients in a slow cooker, except for the pasta and fresh basil. Using a potato masher, break apart the meat and incorporate all of the ingredients. Place a lid on the slow cooker, set to low and allow to cook 6-8 hours.
  2. When you're ready to eat, boil your favorite gluten-free pasta according to the directions. Top the pasta with generous amounts of sauce and garnish with fresh basil. Enjoy!
Leftovers freeze beautifully!
