Notes about this recipe

  • veronicafrance on November 29, 2014

    For me this is the definitive ragu recipe. I hadn't made it for a while, and I was surprised by how little tomato there is in it: just a squirt of tomato puree. I agree with the Italian mamas who add a touch of milk or cream at the end. Worth making a large quantity and freezing in2-person portions.
