3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup grated carrot 

1/4 cup grated onion 

1/2 pound mild Italian sausage, ground 

1 pound ground beef, 80/20 

2 tablespoons tomato paste 

3 garlic cloves, sliced 

1/4 cup red wine 

Salt and pepper 

1 large (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes 

1/2 pound fresh pasta, such as pappardelle 

3 tablespoons minced fresh basil 

1/4 cup minced parsley, with some reserved for garnish 

Grana Padano cheese, grated, for garnish 


  1. Bring 4 quarts salted water to a boil in large pot.
