I just calculated the nutritional information of this recipe and added it to the end of this comment!! You can caramelize your own onions for this but I find a store-bought onion jam works just fine! Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 40 minutes Inactive Time:: 1 hour Total Time: 1 hour 55 minutes Servings: 8 Calories: 677kcal ## Equipment * Wide pot * Large pot ## Ingredients * 4 ounces prosciutto diced * 1 pound ground beef * 1 pound hot Italian sausage loose * 8 ounces mushrooms sliced * 1 tablespoon olive oil if needed * 1 yellow onion peeled and diced * 3 ribs celery with leaves diced * 8 cloves garlic peeled and minced * 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite onion jam * 28- ounce can whole peeled tomatoes * 2 cups water or beef stock * Salt pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste * ⅓ cup heavy cream * 16 ounces dry rigatoni ## For serving: * Fresh basil leaves * Freshly grated parmesan cheese ## Instructions ## Cook the prosciutto: * Place the prosciutto in a wide pot and turn the heat to medium. Cook for 5 minutes until the fat begins to render. * Add the beef and sausage and cook for 12-15 minutes, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks, until cooked through. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Remove all but 1 tablespoon fat from the pot. ## Cook the mushrooms: * Add the mushrooms to the pot and cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Season with salt and pepper. ## Cook the aromatics: * If the pot is dry, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the mushrooms. Add the diced onion and celery to the mushrooms and cook for 6-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. * Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the onion jam and toss to coat. ## Simmer the ragu: * Return the cooked meat to the pot. Add the whole peeled tomatoes and 2 cups of water or beef stock. Taste and season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Add more water or beef stock if the liquid evaporates too quickly. Once thick, turn off the heat and stir in the heavy cream. Keep warm. ## Make the pasta: * Once the ragu has finished cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta until al dente. Remove 1/4 cup of pasta cooking water and then drain the pasta. * Turn the heat on the ragu to medium-high. Once bubbly, add the pasta cooking water and stir to combine. Add the cooked pasta and toss for 1 minute until glossy. Turn off the heat. ## To serve: * Divide the pasta and ragu between bowls. Serve with basil, parmesan, and extra virgin olive oil if you like! ## Nutrition Calories: 677kcal | Carbohydrates: 50g | Protein: 29g | Fat: 39g | Sodium: 698mg | Fiber: 3g | Sugar: 5g | Vitamin C: 13mg

I LOVED it! Re-read the instructions a ton of times because I was suspicious at the lack of seasoning for the meats, but WOW did their flavors shine through. Thanks for the share, it's now going to be on rotation and a go-to when having a gathering.

Is it pancetta or prosciutto? I'm thinking pancetta. Looks delicious. I've just not run across diced prosciutto.


BushyEyes

I used prosciutto but pancetta would be great too!
