I have experimented with making several different ragu or bolognese sauces, and this is by far the best and most flavorful. It takes a while to make, but is well worth the effort, and keeps very well. It actually seems better the second or third time. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Saute onions, celery, carrots and garlic until tender, about 10 minutes. Increase heat to high and add veal, pork, sausage and pancetta; cook until meats are evenly brown.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, chicken broth, milk, parsley, basil and thyme. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 2 1/2 hours; stir occasionally, breaking up tomatoes with spoon as you stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add fettuccini and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  4. Serve fettuccini topped with the sauce and Parmesan cheese.

I love ragu or bolognese sauces and have been tweaking the one I usually use. This recipe was great and seemed to solve all the problems of the one I had been using. Turned out perfect, and as always well worth the time and effort! Classic bolognese with good flavor.

This sauce was amazingly rich. It also freezes well and actually is better after the freeze.

LOVE this recipe!!! Prep and cooking times are long; however it is that recipe for special occasions or when you have extra time on your hands. Have always received compliments on this dish. I do tend to add a couple of bay leaves and some oregano and other italian seasonings. ALWAYS get requests at home for this meal.
