Parmesan Herbed Polenta with Barely Bolognese Sauce

All natural helper for hamburger is the new Meatless Meat Sauce! Inspired by quick & easy meal solutions, we’ve recreated this old favorite to introduce an all natural version of homemade Italian meat sauce: Bolognese!

In a skillet sauté ground beef and spicy sausage (cut open from casing) for five minutes. Salt & Pepper. Add the sauce and simmer for 5-7 minutes while you boil the pasta. Mix together for authentic and delicious Bolognese Meat Sauce. For a twist on tradition, mix the meat with the sauce for sloppy Joe’s, homemade tacos or simply pair with crusty bread and chunks of Parmigiano Reggiano for a cozy winter meal!
