  • 1
    1 tablespoon Olive Oil
    2 pound Ground Beef
    3 cloves Garlic
    Salt to taste
    Heat a large saucepan with olive oil. Brown the ground beef with a large pinch of salt. Add garlic to saucepan and cook for 3 minutes.
  • 2
    1 Onion (diced)
    2 Carrots (small diced)
    2 ribs of Celery (small diced)
    Add onion, carrots and celery into a food processor and pulse to finely chop vegetable. Add vegetable mix to pan and cook for another 3 minutes.
  • 3
    1 28-ounce can Whole Plum Tomatoes
    1 cup Dry Red Wine
    1 Fresh Bay Leaf
    6 sprigs Fresh Oregano
    Salt to taste
    Deglaze the pan with red wine. Add in the tomatoes, breaking them up as you stir them and bring to a simmer. Add the bay leaf and oregano and taste for seasoning.  You may want to add a little salt here. Simmer for about 2 hours, skimming off any excess fat that comes to the top.
  • 4
    Salt to taste
    2 pound Rigatoni
    Once the sauce is done, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Drop the rigatoni in and cook until al dente. Remove from the water with a spider or slotted spoon and add to the sauce. If the sauce is too thick, add a little bit of your pasta water.
  • 5
    1 cup Flat Leaf Italian Parsley (torn)
    1/2 cup Parmesan (grated)
    2 tablespoon Unsalted Butter
    Remove from the heat and stir in parsley, parmesan, butter and a drizzle of olive oil and serve immediately.
