That's when we hit the web and searched Antonio Carluccio's website for ideas. Apparently Carluccio has a book and a TV series coming out soon. How do I know? Because my friend is the TV producer and I keep seeing pictures of Antonio on his facebook page! Although I was very impressed that my friend is rubbing shoulders with such a food hero, I was even more very impressed with Carluccio's recipe for Ragu see here.
As you can tell we loved this dish. The proportions made 4 (or 3 hungry servings in our case). The recipe does not give quantities for the stock but we found a pint was ample. We added a little from time to time to keep the consistency just right. A little at the end and some seasoning is all that is needed.
