PAPPARDELLE RAGU


This slow cooked pappardelle with wild boar ragu will literally melt in your mouth. A family tradition, we enjoy the tender wild boar each and every year at my Great Grandparents old house in the mountain. If your local butcher is lucky enough to be able to supply you with this, you MUST buy some and enjoy a flavour you will undoubtedly never forget.

  3. After around 10 minutes add some roughly chopped pieces of carrot, celery and onion.
  4. 2 minutes later, add the white wine and let it simmer.
  5. Once the vegetables are tender and the wine starts to evaporate, add 2 x 750ml bottles of Passata and mix through.
  6. Add a few branches of celery leaves and sprinkle a fair amount of salt though. Mix once again.
  7. Turn the heat down to a very low heat and let the sauce simmer for 3.5-4 hours, stirring it every now and then.
  8. Once this is cooked, boil up to 5L of water in a large pot and drop in the fresh pappardelle pasta.
  9. Let it cook for 4-5 minutes and then strain it.
  10. Have an extra saucepan on low heat with a spoonful of the sauce lining the bottom. Add the strained pappardelle pasta on top and mix the sauce through.
