Campanelle with Tuscan Ragout2018-03-16
This hearty traditional meat sauce gets great flavors from a combination of three meats, fresh herbs and sun-ripened tomatoes.
Bring salted water to boil in steam-jacketed kettle or large stockpot on stovetop. Add pasta; cook 1 min. less than directed on package.
Meanwhile, heat oil in large rondeau on low heat. Add onions, garlic cloves and herbs; sweat 10 min. or until translucent.
Increase heat to medium-high. Add ground meats; cook 8-10 min. stirring frequently while breaking up large chunks with spoon into smaller pieces. Deglaze pot with wine; reduce until most liquid is evaporated. Discard rosemary sprigs and garlic cloves.
Add tomatoes, water and tomato paste. Simmer mixture 40-45 min. until most liquid is evaporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Batch toss pasta and sauce in skillet on medium heat until coated. Garnish with cheese, parsley and olive oil immediately before serving.
