Spezzatino Ragu with Francesca Giarraffa

Spezzatino is really more of a stew than a sauce. Chunks of veal, beef and pork are simmered for many hours in a red wine tomato sauce until the thick sauce clings to the meat. Master the art of rolling the Gnocchi di Ricotta with Francesca. These homemade ricotta cheese dumplings will then be tossed with some of the ragu sauce. Broccoletti, a southern style salad tossed in a lemony garlic dressing perfectly complements this meal. Finish this rich meal with a Crème Caramello - an Italian custard.
