Sometimes using leftovers in creative dishes can be a lot of fun and this Beef Short Rib Ragu is the perfect example of this.
In a previous post, I made some lovely Beef Short Ribs and I ended up with a bunch left over. Not because they didn’t taste great, they were awesome. The leftovers were are result of how filling they were. I had no desire to have these go to waste, and simply heating them up a second time seemed a bit boring. This recipe evolved because frankly, I wanted to make something old new again.
Taking the kitchen sink approach, I added some left over wine, some canned tomatoes, a bit of spice, and tossed it in with some spaghetti and voila. A delicious pasta dish that my kids devoured. Of course they did so while telling me: “supper last night was OK, but tonight, this is awesome.” Kids, give them noodles and everything is awesome it seems. Although in this case, I would have to agree.
