    Scissors Beef and Mushroom Ragu

    Beef and Mushroom Ragu:027:
    2 oz mushrooms
    2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
    2 oz bacon, chopped -- place in boiling water for a minute before chopping for easier handling
    1 onion, chopped
    1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
    1 small carrot, chopped
    1 tbs parsley
    1 tbs basil or thyme if you have more of that
    1 lb ground beef
    1/2 cup dry red wine

    small can tomato paste
    2 cups water
    1/2 tsp salt
    Use a soft brush or cloth to clean the mushrooms. Trim off any woody tips, then chop the caps and stalks. Set aside. Warm the oil in a pan and add the bacon. Saute for 2 minutes until golden. Add the onion, garlic, carrot, parsley, basil or thyme, and mushrooms. Saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the beef and saute over medium-low heat until lightly colored but not hard, about 1 minute, using a spoon to break it up. Stir in the wine and let it evaporate. Add the tomato paste, water, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a gentle simmer. Cook, partially covered, until the sauce is thick and aromatic, about 30 minutes. Makes 2 1/2 cups = about 330 calories per 1/2 cup serving.
    this is good with rigatoni, penne, or fusilli, and add a salad and crusty bread...well, YUM!
