Serving Size:
8 cups
Ingredients
  • 1/4 lbs diced Cremini Mushrooms
  • 1 minced Onion
  • 3 small dice Celery Stalks
  • 2 small dice Carrot
  • 1 minced Sweet Red Pepper
  • 5 minced Garlic Cloves
  • 1 lbs Ground Beef
  • 1 lbs Ground Veal
  • 28 oz Can of Crushed Tomatoes
  • Salt and Pepper
Directions
  • In a large pot, heat up about 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil - once heated, add in all your chopped veggies: mushrooms, onion, carrot, celery, garlic and red pepper. Cook this down for at least 15 minutes until the mushrooms are completely tender and the onions are translucent (stir frequently to keep anything from burning).
  • Now add in your ground veal and ground beef. After about 10 minutes of stirring and making sure your meat is no longer pink, add in your can of tomatoes.
  • Cook for at least an hour on low heat, covered, to help the flavors really meld. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Lasagna Pasta

Total Time:
Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • Pinch Salt
Directions
  • In a large bowl add your flour and create a “well” in the center where you can crack your eggs into. Crack the 3 eggs in the well & start to mix with a fork.
  • Once mixed, start to kneed with your hands on a floured surface — if the mixture is too dry (which mine was), add little amounts of water to help moisten it up. If the dough is too wet, add a little more flour.
  • Once you’ve kneaded the dough completely. cover with a damp towel for about 15 minutes to let the dough set.
  • Take small handfuls of dough at a time, making sure they’re liberally floured, and roll through the pasta machine until you’ve reached your desired thickness. Set the strips on a floured plate.
  • In a boiling pot of heavily salted water, cook the pasta for about 5 minutes (you don’t want it to be mushy - al dente is the consistency you’re going for - plus the pasta will keep cooking until it's fully cooled down). I then laid out all my pasta individually so they didn’t stick together and had a chance to cool down before the assembly stage.
