“ Pasta al ragù” ( Pasta with minced meat sauce) May 29, 2008

Spesso la Domenica le nostre mamme preparano questo piatto:

Pasta al ragù

Ingredienti:

Salsa di pomodoro

Carne macinata

Carote

Sedano

Pasta (qualsiasi tipo andrà bene)

Metodo:

Tagliuzzare le carote e il sedano, mettere in una padella con olio e far rosolare fino a che non diventino dorate, aggiungere alla carne macinata, poi aggiungere ancora il sugo con un filo d’olio ed il sale. Far cuocere per  un’ora o più. Intanto,riempire una pentola d’acqua e portarla ad ebollizione. Quando l’acqua bolle aggiungere del sale e versare la pasta , aspettare per circa 15 minuti o meno ( dipende dal tipo di pasta). Poi scolare la pasta, condire con il sugo e formaggio grattugiato, meglio se è Parmigiano, e servire.

 

Speriamo che vi piacerà!!

    Learning about another country’s cuisine is a very good (and enjoyable!) way to start understanding the way of life there.
    Anyway , please tell your kids we’re beginning to gain weight here trying all these recipes, because they are really tempting! I’ll have to change my avatar photo soon!

    Great recipe!
    May I just point out that the Italian and English texts are far from identical!!!
    And how much celery should one use?
    And also, there should be salt in the water that’s used to cook the pasta!

    Hi David!
    You’re right! When I translated the recipe ,I completed the text with some more information, but I forgot to add them in my children’s one. I’ll do it right away!
