Scarletti’s Italian Kitchen serves this hearty, warming dish on their dinner menu. Red wine in the braising liquid makes for a flavorful pasta sauce.


  • 6 lb. Barilla Penne
  • 2 1/4 lb. 1-inch pieces asparagus
  • 4 1/2 lb. braised beef short ribs
  • 4 1/2 qt. beef reduction (from braising)
  • 3 qt. canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 qt. asiago-based alfredo sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups garlic butter
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking.

Step 2

Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 3

For each serving, to order: Heat 1 1/2 oz. asparagus, 3 oz. beef ribs, 4 oz. tomatoes, 6 oz. reduction sauce, and 2 oz. alfredo sauce together in a saute pan. Stir in 1 Tbsp. garlic butter. Reheat 2 cups pasta in simmering water and toss it with the sauce. Plate and garnish with 1 tsp. Parmesan and 1/2 tsp. parsley.
