There was one little child called Pippa that when she would go to her grandparent’s house in Demon she only wanted to go to Luigi’s restaurant and always ordered the same food- spaghetti Bolognese.
So, that is why this recreation of the recipe is called Pippa’s spaghetti Bolognese and includes a mix of pork and beef and a lot of herbs and red wine as well.
You will need around 2 hours to prepare this meal and the recipe is for 4 portions.
Read below the necessary things:
- ½ an onion
- ½ a carrot
- 1 stick of celery
- 50 g higher-welfare pancetta
- 15 g unsalted butter
- olive oil
- 250 g higher-welfare minced pork
- 250 g minced beef
- 150 ml red wine
- 3½ heaped tablespoons tomato purée
- 2 liters organic chicken or vegetable stock
- 1 fresh bay leaf
- 2 sprigs of fresh oregano
- 300 g dried spaghetti
- Parmesan cheese
- extra virgin olive oil
- 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
First, you need to peel the onion and carrot and then chop them, chop as well the celery and pancetta and leave them separate.
Next, melt the butter together with 1 splash olive oil on medium heat and then start frying the pancetta for a period of 1 minute. Then include the carrot, onion, and celery and cook them for around 10 minutes, they need to get soft.
After this, include the mince and cook it for another 5 minutes or until the color gets brown and there is no liquid left in the pan. You should stir all of the time breaking the mince up.
Add the wine next and let it bubble away. After that add the tomato puree and leave it to cook for a couple of minutes more.
Then include the bay, then pick and oregano and mix well.
You need to cook it until it starts boiling and then cover it and lower the heat and leave it to cook for another 45 minutes or until it gets thicker. Stir from time to time.
When this sauce is at the end with cooking, you need to boil the spaghetti in salted water according to the instructions written on the pack.
At the end put some salt and pepper in the Bolognese sauce for taste and remove the bay leaf.
Then you should drain the pasta from the water (leave a little water if the sauce is too thick in order to get loose if that is necessary) and include the Bolognese sauce.
Now you can serve them in your plates and add Parmesan at the top. Sprinkle it with little olive oil as well, a little oregano and rosemary too. Enjoy!
