Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat (I used a dutch oven)
  2. Add the onions and carrots. Season with salt and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the onions have softened
  3. Add oregano, basil, and garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes
  4. Add the beef and increase the heat
  5. Cook the beef until browned, make sure you break up the beef into small pieces. Season with salt and pepper
  6. Drain the excess liquid and add the wine. Cook until the wine has reduced by half.
  7. Add the bay leaves, tomato paste, water, parmesan cheese rind, and the ragu sauce. Mix well
  8. When sauce starts to boil, reduce the heat to simmer and cook for 1-2 hours partially covered
  9. Check it every once in a while to make sure the sauce hasn't dried. If that happens simply add more liquid.
  10. Check for seasoning and serve with hot pasta and parmesan cheese
  11. Enjoy!
