Ingredients

For the Cavatelli:
o 2 Cups - White flour
o Water

For the Ragu`:
o 1 Lb - Meat (Beef, lamb, pork and veal)
o 1 Qt. Tomato sauce
o 1 Onion
o 2 Cloves garlic
o 2 Oz. - White wine
o Grated Parmigiano cheese
o 2 leaves of basil
o Parsley
o EV olive oil
o Salt & pepper


Cavatelli:


o Pour the flour in a bowl and begin to add water a little at the time. Mix the water into the flour.


o Once the water is well amalgamated with the flour, remove the flour from the bowl and move it to a wooden board. Continue to work with your hands the dough until reaches a firm consistency.


o Cut a piece of dough and roll it with your hands on the board into a round form a little less that 1/2" thick.


o With a knife, cut the round dough into small pieces an with the tip of your index and middle finger press on each piece end pull it toward you. It should result in a "Cavatello".


Ragu':


o In a sauce pan, add EV olive oil and saute` the garlic and the onion together.


o Once the garlic begins to turn golden, add the four cuts of meat: pork, veal, lamb and beef.


o Let the meat color on all sides and add the white wine.


o After a minute or two, add the tomato sauce, the basil cut into pieces and the parsley. Add salt and pepper as desired.


o Cook for 1 hour.


o Pour the Ragu` sauce over the cavatelli which you have cooked separately and garnish with plenty of Parmigiano.
