SACHET OF BEANS WITH OSSOBUCO RAGU’
by Flavia Cori – Link

A long time ago, pasta dough was always homemade and the meat used to make ragu sauce was usually cut by hand.

Traditionally, “ossobuco” meat (sliced veal shanks) was prepared in Tuscany as a main dish with vegetables and tomato sauce, beans were cooked usually with sage, garlic and tomato (“all’uccelletto”) and served as a side dish.

Tradition and creativity come together in this dish suggested by Maria Salcuni, one of the five chefs at La Tenda Rossa, in Cerbaia Val di Pesa.

Fresh pasta, cannellini beans and “ossobuco” make an excellent match in this incredible Sachet of beans with “ossobuco” ragu, a stellar dish for very special occasions.
