Pasta with Ragu Genovese Recipe from Le Sirenuse Hotel – Positano Italy

Zita with Sugo Genovese
 
 
 
La GENOVESE
 

Genovese Sauce is a slow-cooked onion and meat sauce associated with Italy’s Campania region, especially Naples — typically served with Paccheri, Rigatoni, Ziti or candele pasta — and sprinkled with grated cheese.

Genovese may be prepared with inexpensive cuts of beef, pork, veal or sausage, but typically share and emphasize slow-cooked onions. A Genovese sauce is always tomato-less.

Recipes may cite the ramata di Montoro, a yellow onion with copper-colored skin.

 

Likely introduced to Naples from the northern Italian city of Genoa during the Renaissance, Genovese has since become associated with Italy’s South, and especially Campania.

 
SUGO al GENOVESE Recipe by Chef Gennaro Russo of the World Renowned Le Sirenuse Hotel,
Positano, Italy on the Amalfi Coast.
 
Recipe :
 
2 pound Beef Chuck Shoulder Roast, seasoned with Salt & Black Pepper
4 pounds Spanish Onions, cut in half, then sliced thin
2 Clelery Stalks, washed and diced very fine
2 Carrots, peeled and finely diced
2 cups Chicken or Beef Broth
2 cups Water
Olive Oil, Salt, Black Pepper
2 Bay Leaves
 
1 pound Imported Italian Rigatoni or other shirt maccheroni past
Parmigiana Reggiano, grated
Butter
 
 
Coat the bottom of a 6 quart heavy bottomed pot. Turn heat to high. Add the Beef Chuck Roast. Turn heat to high.
 
Brown all sides of the Beef, turn to get the whole roast nicely browned.
 
Remove the Beef from pot and set aside.
 
Add the Carrots, Celery, and Onions to the pot. Season with 1 teaspoon each of Salt & Black Pepper. Cook over low heat for 2o minutes. Stir occasionaly with a wooden spoon.
 
Add the Beef back to the pot with the Broth and Water. Add Bay Leaves. Cook over very low heat for about 3 hours, stirring occasionaly with a wooden spoon to keep sauce from sticking to the bottom of the pot and to prevent burning. (Note: If your sauce burns, it’s ruined).
 
Turn heat off, and let the sauce (Sugo) cool. When cool, break up the meat with your hands or wooden spoons.
 
Taste for seasoning, to see if you need to add a little more Salt & Pepper or not.
 
Cook the Maccheroni Pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, according to the directions on the package.
 
When the pasta is done cooking, drain in a colander, reserving some of the pasta cooking water. Add the drain pasta back to the pot it cooked in. Add 2 cups of the Ragu Genovese, a small knob of butter and 1 tablespoon or so of olive oil and mix.
 
Plate the pasta into pasta bowls or on plates. Top each plate of pasta with a little more sauce on top.
Serve with grated Parmigiana Cheese on the side, and enjoy.

Positano

I’ve been going to Positano and the Amalfi Coast of Italy since the Summer of 1985, when I made my first trip to Italy, France, Spain, and Europe as a young man in my early 20s. That frist trip was amazing, there’s nothing like being so young and taking a trip like that, when new everything feels so magical. It’s an feeling you just don’t get as you get older. Anyway, I’m a bit older, and though I can’t regain the same feelings of my youth, I still love the place (Positano) and going there is always so very nice. 

Now the main point in this all, is unlike so many others who are blogging and writing about the magical town, very few could match my long history and experiences in Positano, on Capri, Rome and Naples, or anywhere on the Devine Coast of Amalfi. Yes, I have quite a lot of experiences in Positano over the years. I tell you about them, and make recommendations on where to stay (hotels), where to eat (Trattoria ‘s / Pizzeria ‘s & Bakeries), the Best Beaches, How to Get There and What to Do Once you are there on Positano or anywhere on the Amalfi Coast. You’ve got to go to Ravello, there’s a wonderful Lemon Farm Agriturismo that I go to in Minori, that’s a Hidden Gem few people know about. You’ve got to go to Pompeii, and a foray into Naples is highly recommend for a Pizza Crawl if you have the time. While on your trip to the Amalfi Coast area, I highly recommend staying two nights on Capri if you have the time. What I don’t recommend that highly is going to Capri just for a few hours, if you have the time, you must stay there to really appreciate the island and all its many charms.

BEST BEACHES

1.     Le SCOGLIERA BEACH CLUB is my all-time Favorite Beach to go to in Positano. It’s a bit of splurge treat, and I split my beach time in Positano between this beach and the FREE BEACH at FORNILLO BEACH. Yes, it’s a bit expensive, but I’ve been going here since my first trip, and it’s a special treat to myself whenever I spend the extra cash to go there.

2.    My 2nd favorite Beach in Positano, is the Free Beach at Fornillo Beach where I used to go with my friend Nicoletta way back in 1986. There’s also a Private Beach area, where you pay to rent a Chaise Loung. I like the free part better, and when I to spend the cash for a private beach, I go to Le SCOGLERA BEACH CLUB next to “Music O The Rock.”

Basta !

BEST BARS For APERTIVO or Anytime

1.   The BAR at The POSEIDON HOTEL .. Great view * Crowd and Cheaper than FRANCO’S BAR at Le SIRNEUSE HOTEL

2.    FRANCO’S BAR .. Great spot for your evening apertivo, with a Spectacular View and equally spectacular prices (expensive) to match. It quite nice, but persoally, I like the Bar on Terrace of The Hotel Poseidon. It’s cheaper too!
