MEAT SAUCE RECIPE
Recommended for our SPINACH & CHEESE RAVIOLI and for our MEAT RAVIOLI
Meat Version Recipe:
In a separate pan, heat olive oil; then add ground meat in sauce pan. For La Biscotteria's secret flavor add one 8 ounce glass of Pinot Grigio (white) wine or Barbera (red) wine. Let meat brown until wine is absorbed. Then add cooked meat to tomato sauce. Meat amount is approximately 1/2 lb. ground pork or Italian sausage and a 1/2 lb. ground veal, beef, or buffalo (I prefer veal to beef and buffalo meat to beef). The amount of ground meat used will depend on the amount of guests. Be generous, you can always freeze left overs for later use. Cook until well browned. Then add to tomato sauce pot which has been cooking for 15 minutes. Use the Simple Tomato Sauce Recipe below to continue this meat sauce recipe.
Tomato Sauce Recipe:
In a large pot, begin with generous amount of olive oil to coat the bottom of pot, then add tomato sauce (pureed store bought version is okay or try our Dell'Amore version we sell in our bakery) or fresh chopped tomatoes (use tomatoes attached to vines for best flavored sauce), add fresh basil & garlic (preferable). Cook for 45 minutes. (Meat may be added to this sauce recipe).
Poor sauce onto the bowl of ravioli and top them off with generous sprinkled amount of parmigiano cheese.
Don't forget to stir ravioli using only a wooden spoon or ravioli will tear and break!
Serve and enjoy every bite.
