Beef and Extra Veggie Bolognese

This recipe is courtesy of my mom. She used to make this when we were younger and she still does! It is a hearty pasta sauce and full of vegetables. If you want your family to get in more veggies you need to try this sauce! The veggies are pureed and added to the sauce so the kids won’t even know! Ideally, you want the ratio of meat to veggies to be 1:2 but you can start off with a 1:1 ratio and go from there. You can choose any veggies you want!
