Why I Love This Recipe

Create this new take on an old classic, and explore why many chefs are turning to fish sauce as their secret ingredient. While fish sauce may be a surprising choice in an Italian-inspired entrée, just a couple of tablespoons can add smooth and savoury taste to complete your pasta. A gluten and lactose free ingredient, fish sauce can also substitute for pantry staples like soy sauce and salt.

Ingredients You'll Need

• 1 lb (500 g) lean ground beef

• 1 yellow onion, finely diced

• 1 carrot, peeled and finely diced

• 1 celery stalk, finely diced

• 1 tsp (5 mL) Club House Prepared Minced Garlic

• 2 tbsp (30 mL) tomato paste

• 1 can (796 mL) crushed tomatoes

• 2 tsp (10 mL) Club House Basil Leaves

• 1/2 cup (125 mL) whole milk

• 1/2 cup (125 mL) water

• 2 tbsp (30 mL) Thai Kitchen Fish Sauce

• 2 tsp (10 mL) Club House Parsley Flakes

• Club House Sea Salt Grinder and Club House Black Peppercorn Grinder, to taste


1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until no longer pink, crumbling with a spoon. Remove beef from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.

2. Add onion, carrot and celery. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds.

3. Return beef to pan. Add tomato paste and stir well. Add crushed tomatoes, basil, milk and water. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer sauce for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Add fish sauce, parsley, salt and pepper. Stir well. Simmer for another 5 minutes.

5. Serve over cooked pasta with freshly grated parmesan.
