As far as Sunday gravies go, this one is quite doable. Featuring ground beef and sausages, the red sauce gets some acidity from white wine and a woodsy note from the addition of rosemary. Meanwhile, a pinch of sugar takes the edge off. Tortiglioni is called for, though you can swap it out for any tube-shaped pasta. Toss the pasta in the sauce before serving and shower it with some freshly grated Parmesan for the best results.

Ingredients

  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion (peeled and chopped)
  • 200 grams ground beef
  • 2 sausages (skinned, crumbled)
  • fresh rosemary (minced)
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 500 milliliters tomato puree
  • ground black pepper
  • sea salt
  • sugar
  • 400 grams tortiglioni (or similar tube pasta)
  • parmesan cheese (grated)

Directions

  1. In a skillet add 3 tablespoons of oil and heat on medium heat. Add the onion and saute for for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the beef, sausage, and a pinch of rosemary and cook until brown.
  3. Add the wine and cook until almost dry.
  4. Add the tomato puree and a small amount of water.
  5. Season with a pinch each of salt, black pepper, and sugar.
  6. Cover and cook on low heat until sauce is thick, about 3 hours.
  7. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for about 9 minutes or until al dente.
  8. Drain the pasta and add the meat sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I used crushed tomatoes instead of just a can of tomatoes with sauce. Also, I added the wine towards the end of simmering the sauce not to lose the flavor from over cooking it. This is a really lovely dish for a romantic dinner for two.
