This meat sauce is made for my (signature dish) Northern Italian Lasagne - or is equally delicious served with home-made tagliatelle and lashings of shaved parmesan!
A rich creamy sauce, this dish requires no garlic and only a little tomatoes. Once you make it, you'll understand - it's just the best!!!
I always make double the batch so as to freeze half and cook with the other half (it's that good) - or, I make one huge lasagne, or two medium sized ones!
Heat the butter in a saucepan and add the pancetta. Cook until lightly browned and then add the onion, celery and carrot (to create a soffrito). Cook over moderate heat for 6-8 minutes, stirring from time to time.
Add the minced beef, pork and oregano to the saucepan. Season with the nutmeg and salt and pepper.
Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the mince has changed colour but not yet browned.
Stir in the milk and simmer for 2 minutes. Pour in the wine, increase the heat and boil over high heat for 2-3 minutes, or until the wine has been absorbed, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and half the stock, partially cover the pan and leave to simmer gently over very low heat for 3 hours. Add more of the stock as it is needed to keep the sauce moist.
After 3 hours, stir the cream into the sauce and it is ready!
If using for lasagne, it is best to cool the sauce and leave in the fridge overnight to let the flavours further develop. The next day, make a good bechamel sauce with good quality cheeses, use home made lasagne sheets (if possible) and heat the sauce again to be able to assemble the lasagne. Try and make 4 layers for good effect! - Good luck!

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
