Meat Sauce for Pasta

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

This meaty pasta sauce is very similar to Ragù Bolognese and is quick to cook. Although the addition of milk might seem unusual it is traditional in northern Italy where butter, cream, and milk are considered essential to the cuisine.

Notes

Reserve some of the pasta cooking water, and add a little to the sauce if it seems too thick. The water is ideal for adjusting the consistency of the sauce, and the starch in the water helps the sauce adhere to the pasta.
