Pasta Bolognese

I twittered this recipe the other night but don’t want to lose it, the sauce was great!! It was the first time I’d ever made Bolognese. Can’t say it’s quick but it’s still easy and rich and so yummy.

1 lg onion, 2 stalks celery, 6 cloves garlic.

Add about 1c. chopped pancetta:

Add 1 lb ground beef, 1/2 lb italian sausage. Cook until brown.

Add 1/2 glass red wine, reduce. Add 2 can tomatoes, 1c. chicken stock, 3T fresh thyme, 1/4 c cream

Bolognese then simmered for about 1 – 1 1/2 hours.

The final product. I stirred in a big handful of fresh basil off the heat. Had a fabulous 2002 Ridge Syrah with it.
