This recipe is stolen from a blog written by Kate. I claim no originality only modifications. Here is a link to her original. http://www.ifyoucanmakethatyoucanmakethis.com/core-recipes-savoury/pasta-with-things-you-can-buy-at-the-deli/ragu I used it with spaghetti and the fiancée and I loved it! We didn't actually use any cheese on top but it was still so yummy and it made the kitchen smell amazing. This recipe is perfect for an afternoon when you are busy but staying in the house. 1 large onion1 stick of celery1 carrot3 cloves of garlic (1 fat clove for 2)1 bay leafabout 1 lb of turkey meat1 bottle of wine (1/2 bottle for 2)1 small can of tomatoes1 tsp sugar1 tbsp butter1 sprig of fresh rosemary1/2 tsp dried thyme or 1 tsp fresh thymeOlive oilSalt and pepper
Dice the onion and fry gently in about 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter to soften
Dice the celery and the carrot and add to the pan. Cook for about five mins until starting to soften (keep the heat low so that the onion doesn’t burn)
Grate in the garlic
Add the meat and stir with a fork to brown and break up a bit. Season well.
Add the tomatoes, the sugar (brings out the tomato-y-ness of the tomatoes), the wine and the bay leaf, put the lid half on, then simmer on a low heat for 2 hours (or put in the oven at around 180 / 200ish for an afternoon)
The sauce should be rich and thick. It can now sit in the fridge for a few days and be re-heated when needed (about 10 mins on the stove top).
Cook your favorite pasta according to the packet instructions
Stir the sauce through and eat, with parmesan to grate over
I hope you all find it as easy and delicious as I did!
