Ingredients
  • 1/4 pound pancetta, diced
  • 3 pounds pork spareribs, denuded, cut into individual ribs
  • 2 pounds Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups diced yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup diced garlic
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 4 cups whole San Marzano tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound radiatore pasta, cooked al dente
  • 1 bunch sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large heavy braising pot, over medium heat cook pancetta until crispy and golden. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate to drain. Add the spareribs to the pancetta fat and brown well on both sides.

Remove ribs to a baking sheet and bake until tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Add the sausage to the pot and brown both sides. Add the peppers, onion and garlic. Cook until translucent, then deglaze with wine. Simmer for a couple of minutes, then add tomatoes. Bring back to a simmer, and add the cooked pork ribs, parsley, basil, chili flakes and salt and pepper, to taste.

Simmer on low to medium heat, covered, for another 1 1/2 hours.

Serve over pasta, and garnish with pancetta, green onions and Parmesan.
