Nonna’s Sugo for Pasta
Nonna’s recipe for home made sugo Abruzzese-style.
|Preparation Time:||10 minutes|
|Cooking time:||2 hours|
- 1 cup pure olive oil
- 2 lamb chump chops
- 1 rasher pork belly
- 2 pieces beef chuck steak
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
- 1 small carrot, peeled
- 1 slice red capsicum
- 1/4 stalk celery
- pinch dried mixed Italian herbs
- 2 litres home made tomato passata
Heat oil in a large pot and brown meat and onion. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. Simmer slowly, with the lid to one side, for 2 hours until reduced by half. Use for pasta asciutta or pasta al forno.
Usually, the sauce meat is removed from the sauce and served after the pasta dish, with a little salad.
If using store bought passata, reduce simmering time to 1 hour, covering if it thickens too much to allow the meat to cook.
