It’s certainly an essential part of life at Villa Pia: we are extremely proud of our Italian chefs and the family friendly dishes they create daily.
Meal times at Villa Pia are a communal activity and our Italian cookery lessons always prove popular with guests.
Today, we’d like to share another recipe from the Villa Pia kitchen: Sugo di Carne or Ragu — better known in English as meat sauce.
Our easy Italian recipe for meat sauce is a simpler yet satisfying version of sauces like Napoletana or Bolognese that typically take hours to prepare and are served on more special occasions.
