Rigatoni al ragu bianco

A classic example of simple Italian food done well, ragu bianco is a tasty twist on a classic bolognese sauce but without the tomato.

Ingredients

  • 500g rigatoni pasta

  • 200g minced beef

  • 200g minced pork

  • 100g smoked diced pancetta

  • 3 tablespoon olive oil

    In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and the butter and fry the onion, celery, carrot and pancetta for about 10 minutes until softened and golden.
