Lisa Topping


1/4 pound pancetta, diced
3 pounds pork spareribs, cut into individual ribs
2 pounds Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups red bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups diced yellow onion
1/4 cup diced garlic
1/2 cup white wine
4 cups whole San Marzano tomatoes
3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound radiatore pasta, cooked al dente
1 bunch sliced green onions
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large heavy braising pot, over medium heat cook pancetta until crispy and golden. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate to drain. Add the spareribs to the pancetta fat and brown well on both sides. Remove ribs to a baking sheet and bake until tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Add the sausage to the pot and brown both sides. Add the peppers, onion and garlic. Cook until translucent, then deglaze with wine. Simmer for a couple of minutes, and then add tomatoes. Bring back to a simmer, and add the cooked pork ribs, parsley, basil, chili flakes and salt and pepper, to taste. Simmer on low to medium heat, covered, for another 1 1/2 hours. Serve over pasta, and garnish with pancetta, green onions and Parmesan. Serves 6.
