There's nothing more comforting than pasta and homemade meat sauce on a snowy wintery day. This recipe comes from my family in Italy and was passed on to me by my dad. We have been making this meat sauce for my entire life so it's nostalgic to make it here in New York. I'm using a really nice fresh egg pasta from the Italian shop inside Chelsea Market and paired it with a decent Grenache (that my wine guy recommended). I enjoy making this dish for friends so I'm finally buying a dinning table so that I can share the love before the winter is over. Amici, mangiamo!
