Beef Ragu Penne Pasta

Ragu may sound like an intimidating name for a dish. But fret not, it is an absolutely simple one-pot stew that everyone can make.

The main ingredient is beef chuck which is a tough and flavourful cut of beef, slow-cooked to perfection using San Remo sauces. We added sundried tomatoes, onions and a classic combination of celery and carrots for that subtle sweetness.
Finish off by serving it over San Remo Brown Rice Penne pasta and top with grated parmesan cheese!
P.S. We’re having a fabulous San Remo giveaway on the 22nd May (Monday) in Facebook. Stay tuned for more information!
