Mafalde with Beef Ragù alla Bolognese
£8.50 – £14.45
There are few Italian sauces better known than this classic ragù made by slow-cooking beef mince with plenty of aromatics, although on British menus you would be far more likely to encounter Bolognese sauce matched with spaghetti. Curiously, as ubiquitous a combination as this may be in British households, it’s one that simply doesn’t exist in Italy. Instead, in true Bolognese fashion tagliatelle or pappardelle are the more likely candidates – but certainly not spaghetti as any true Italian would tell you. The logic behind this is that the wider ribbons are better able to hold, and mop up, the substantial sauce. And in our beautiful mafalde, we think we have found the most meravigliosa partner for this week’s ragù.
Mafalde, also known as Reginette, (Italian for ‘little queen’s) have a rather striking appearance; ribbon-shaped with beautiful wavy edges. In 1995 the Italian government commemorated the Princess Mafalda of Savoy with a limited edition stamp. Princess Mafalda tragically died during WWII, whilst under arrest in a concentration camp. The entrancing shape of this pasta is said to evoke Princess Mafalda’s curls.
