Any good cook knows whom to follow. In My case is Mario Batali an others whom inspire me must are those that not only cook from the heart an passion but also that knows the Story behind each plate adding knowledge to each plate makes it an vacation on it's own.
I was looking for a simple dish for dinner since we are had a storm to try an relax sit down at the table with my family an then walla! Bolognese it is!
I did mine with certain variations than the original recipe wish called for Veal an Pancetta but try to grasp the Essence of the dish in each ingredient I knew this one could have definitely be better as I was raving for some fresh Regiano better next time I say! To, Mario Batali for introducing me to hes world an for making me love pasta the way I do!.
Please Visit foodnetwork for the Original Recipe Here is My Variation From the Original
- 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 carrot, finely, diced
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 rib celery, finely diced
- 1 clove garlic, sliced
- 1/2 tube tomato paste
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup dry white wine
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
I Shredded all the veggies toguether to do some what like a puree including the carrots In a saucepan I heat up Olive Oil an let it cook for around 20 minutes I added the Ground Lean beef an stir everything up at high heat. I added the fresh tomatoes an tomato paste , milk and wine an let it simmer over low heat. for around 1 hour an a half. Seasoned it witha pinch of Salt an Pepper an added to the Penne'
tip: Temper The Milk before adding it! I found that the milk helps to tone down the acidity of the tomatoes.
Add Hearty Cooking Wine Parmesano Romano in my case I used Italian Red cooking wine*.
