|Ragu and ziti pasta cooking|
The below meat ragu recipe is based on the recipe in the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook. I honestly can't say enough good things about this book. When I was learning to cook, a friend recommended it. And it is now the most used, destroyed and beloved cookbook in our kitchen.
This is an awesome cookbook is made by the same people who made the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, mentioned above:
This meat ragu came out very hearty with a strong beef flavor. In some ways, it almost tastes like my favorite beef stew. However, the Pecorino Romano cheese and the Ziti noodles all but made me forget the resemblance. If I were to modify this recipe, I'd try to give it a more Italian flavor by adding oregano, a couple cloves of garlic and more tomatoes.
