  • Summary

    Here is a meaty tomato sauce that doesn't need to cook for a long time to be delicious. The sauce is based on the famed Ragu alla Bolognese (sauce in the style of Bologna). The addition of milk might seem unusual, but it's traditional in northern Italy -- where butter and cream, as well as milk, are essential to the cuisine.

    Ingredients

    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 carrot, grated (about 1/2 cup)
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 3/4 pound ground beef
    • 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 dried bay leaf
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 1 pound fettuccine
    • Grated Parmesan, for serving
