Entertain alfresco with this gorgeous pasta dish by Tom Niall, featured in episode 16 of Everyday Gourmet.
In a heavy based casserole with a lid, heat olive oil over a moderate heat and cook off finely diced onion, celery, carrot and garlic until they soften.
Turn heat to high and add diced goat meat and cook for 5 mins or until meat looks like it is beginning to brown
Stir through tomato paste so theres a nice even coverage. By then the pan should have returned to a high heat so then add white wine. The white wine will almost deglaze the pan and after 5 mins you can add the tin of crushed tomatoes and chicken stock.
Stir in the sprig of thyme, bay leaf and lemon rind. once the liquid has come to a boil reduce heat to a simmer and replace lid stirring occasionally for 30 mins
Remove lid and let the ragout simmer away so some liquid evaporates for another 30 mins
Stir through butter and season to taste
Serve with pappardelle pasta, a generous hand full of parsley and ricotta.
