White Ragu Sauce For Pasta




White Ragu Sauce For Pasta
This comforting ragu is perfect for those who aren't keen on tomato based sauces. The usual tin of chopped tomatoes is replaced with mascarpone cheese and grated nutmeg. The salty bacon and Parmesan helps give the sauce plenty of flavour and the end result is really rich and filling. This will make 4 servings plus leftovers for lunch the next day.

  4. It does sound lush. You're not the only one who finds it a whole lot better to cook with a glass in your hand - and having to finish the bottle off is the ideal reason for putting wine in food in the first place! The scary '5 bottles' couple might be pushing it a tad though...

  5. That sounds good and I could substitute the meat with mushrooms.

    2 glasses of wine, isn't going to do you any harm. Enjoy!

  6. Wow, this does look absolutely rich and wonderful. I'll bet the white wine gives it a bit of a refreshing break between bites!

  9. I love this quote from WC Fields,
    “I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.” He was a man after my own heart.

    I love the recipe, sounds like just the cure for rainy day blues.

  14. I am pretty much a two glass girl too. There are people that drink WAY more! :)

    That looks lovely - I love rigatoni - reminds me of my childhood - however, that sauce is very adult like. I am so glad Lowen loved it! Good on you!

  15. I LOVE rigatoni!!
    A white ragu sounds fabulous. Maybe you could even add cannellini beans to this.

    I can't believe your co-worker drinks that much wine! I would be puking...
