Salsiccia Ragu

Piemontegirl will now teach you how to make a salsiccia ragu that’s similar to everyone’s favorite “bolognese” but is so much better that you will never eat Bolognese again. Just follow these easy steps. Of course ingredients are vital, but if you have those, you should be good to go! If Piemontegirl can do it, so can you!



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 4 sweet italian sausage links (or sausage of your choice)
  • 1/2 6 ounce can of tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • salt and pepper
  • Pasta — Strozzapreti or casarecce
  • Optional (recommended): thyme, preferably fresh



  1. Soften onions in oil, about 6-8 minutes
  2. Add sausage, cook until brown, about 10 minutes
  3. Then, add paste, cook for about 5 minutes
  4. Add wine, boil down until absorbed
  5. Stir in milk, season with salt & pepper (and thyme)
  6. Reduce heat, cook for about 15 minutes
  7. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil and cook the pasta

Bon apetit!
