    3. Move meat to the sides of the pot, add veggies and sweat for 5 minutes, don’t brown.
    4. Add tomato paste, dried herbs, and sugar.
    5. Deglaze with wine, add broth, bay leaf, thyme, then San Marzano.
    6. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer for 20 mins, stirring often. 
    7. Add water if liquid evaporates, do not let it scorch.
    8. Remove bay leaf & thyme, adjust seasoning with S&P, add sriracha if heat is desired. 
  • Add cream just before serving for a pinkish variation.

Agnolotti

    1. For the filling: mix cheeses with 1 oz. of egg, S&P.
    2. For the Agnolotti: Place a small amount of cheese in the center of a wonton skin, lightly brush the edges with egg wash.
    3. Fold the skins over, make sure to remove air bubbles before sealing and press the edges with a pasta cutter.
    4. Repeat until the filling is gone. Lay Agnolotti on a sheet pan dusted with Semolina flour. 
    5. Do not stack Agnolotti directly on each other.
    6. To Cook: Shake off excess Semolina,  gently place into rapidly boiling salted water until all pasta floats to the surface.
    7. Drain pasta, place in a bowl and top with sauce, garnish with shaved Parmesan.
