Pasta guide part 2
Part 2 of my pasta guide is all about a lovely, meaty, Italian, Ragu to mix through some amazingly fresh, cooked to perfection, homemade tagliatelle. If you missed my first pasta guide on how to make your own fresh pasta from scratch you can find it here: Homemade fresh pasta
Once the art of pasta making has been mastered, (and although it is an art its a nice and easy process) the sauce to go with the freshest of the fresh pasta has to be spot on. And of course the go-to sauce for any pasta dish is always good old bolognese. Or if your in Italy: Ragu. To make a truly traditional ragu the meat needs to include minced pork. This can be a mixture of beef and pork or just full on pork. However, if you fancy just sticking to beef then nip over to my Slow Cooker Beef Ragu recipe.
Ragu in Italy
I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had Ragu in Italy – its a lot, but each time its always slightly different. Each chef has their own twist or secret ingredient to make it their own and to make it that little bit extra special. On one of our visits to the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, we found a tiny little restaurant, which was serving up Salami Ragu. And it was gooood.
San Gimi is bursting at the seams with all kinds of salami and charcuterie, so it only seems natural that this fine produce should end up in their Ragu.
And it seems inevitable that we would buy some of their wonderful salami and whisk it back home to make our own special Ragu.
As this is a traditional Ragu the amount of tomato in this recipe is limited to just tomato puree and the rest of the sauce is made up of red wine and stock.

So hearty and delicious and perfect in any season – Ragu or bolognese of any kind will always be my absolute favourite.
