• 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 350g pork mince
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 sticks celery, finely chopped
  • olive oil, for frying
  • 1 heaped tbsp tomato purée
  • 100ml white wine
  • 100g 'nduja
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 150ml whole milk
  • 500g pasta (fresh or dry mafalde, or tagliatelle as an alternative)
  • 100g parmesan, finely grated


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a casserole. Add the pork with a pinch of seasoning and cook until really brown.

  • STEP 2

    In a separate pan, fry the carrot, onion and celery in a little olive oil and salt until soft but without colouring.

  • STEP 3

    Add the tomato purée to the pork and stir, cooking it out until it reaches a light orangey colour. Add the white wine and cook until evaporated. Now add the cooked veg to the pork, mix well and then add the ’nduja, stock, bay leaf and milk. Cook gently for 2 hours or until tender and reduced. Season.

  • STEP 4

    Cook the pasta in salted water until al dente. Remove from the water with tongs (reserving some cooking water for later) and add to the ragu. Incorporate gently and, if a little dry, add a ladle of cooking water and stir in over the heat to loosen. Serve straight away with grated parmesan on top.
