1 medium White onions (finely diced)
1 Medium stalk Celery, raw (finely diced)

3 quart Water
4 ounce Whole Wheat Linguine (or gluten-free linguine)
1 ounce Semisoft goat cheese
1 ounce Parmesan cheese (grated)


Place the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Add the garlic and cook for about one minute. Stir continuously.

Add the onion and celery and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir frequently.

Add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir frequently and adjust the heat to keep the mushrooms from browning.

Add the ground beef and cook until the beef is browned.

Add the white wine, stock, basil, oregano, marjoram, and tarragon.

Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add water 1/4 cup at a time as needed.

Place the water in a large sauce pan over high heat.

When the water boils, add the pasta and cook until al dente.

Just before the pasta is done, add the goat cheese and parmesan cheese to the pan with the sauce. Fold together until the cheese melts.

Drain the noodles and serve topped with the sauce.

Recipe Notes

Of course, most of the time you think of Bolognese as being made with tomato sauce, but this version is fantastic. The slow cooking of the veggies and beef creates a rich, thick sauce. The balance is similar to Bolognese made with tomatoes, but it’s softer and has richer umami flavors.
