1 kg tordelli
500 g ground lean veal
2 medium carrots
1 celery stick
2 bay leaves
2 small cans of peeled tomato or 600 ml tomato puree
1 1⁄2 glass white table wine
Extra virgin olive oil
Chop the carrots, celery and onion into small pieces.
Preparing the sauce: brown the carrots, celery and onion for 5 minutes in a large saucepan. Add the ground meat. Leave to cook for 15 minutes and add the white wine. When the wine has evaporated, season with salt and pepper. Add the cloves and bay leaves. Add the tomato puree when the sauce thickens. Adjust seasoning to taste. Leave to cook on low heat for at least two hours. If the sauce becomes too thick, add a little hot water from time to time and mix.
Half an hour before the end of the cooking time, bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the tordellis when the water begins to boil.
Drain al dente.
Mix the sauce with the tordellis and sprinkle with grated parmesan.
