Recipe Notes:
*settle in, this recipe is for that Sunday dinner that you’ve got all day to cook: or cook this sauce a few days in advance!
*this recipe feeds a bunch, so make sure to invite some people to “assist”
*you can sub/exclude meats if you want, but the blend is kinda what gives the sauce “depth”, so go for it!

1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrot
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup ground salami
(or any fatty meat scraps)
1 lb. ground pork
1 lb. ground lamb
1 lb. ground beef
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1/4 cup chopped garlic
1 cup white wine
1 cup marinara (store bought is ok!)

1 cup 2% milk
pinch ground nutmeg (fresh if possible)

  1. cook salami over high in dutch oven or large pot until fat is rendered

Recipe notes:
*note: the quantities on this side are “per serving”
*the sauce can be refrigerated (or even frozen) and assembled a portion a time
*letting the sauce “marry” with the pasta is why restaurant pasta always tastes better!
