Tagliatelle al Ragù alla Bolognese


Peel and dice the vegetables and the pancetta. Heat some olive oil with a pinch of salt in a large pot, and sauté the pancetta until transparent. Add onions and celery to the pot, soften for a few minutes then add the carrots and minced meat. 

Let it cook for a few minutes, then add the strained tomatoes, some tomato paste and a dash of milk. Stir the bolognese and let it simmer for 2 hours. Don’t forget to occasionally stir and add some milk. 

Meanwhile cook the tagliatelle until al dente. While cooking, season the bolognese sauce with white wine, pepperoncini, salt and pepper. Serve your fresh pasta with the home cooked pasta sauce and enjoy with a glass of Zinfandel from a RIEDEL Zinfandel glass for a perfect food and wine pairing!
