"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery and carrots. Saute until soft, 8-10 minutes. Add beef, sausage and pancetta; saute, breaking with the back of the spoon until browned, about 15 minutes. Add wine; boil 1 minute, stirring often and scraping up brown bits. Add 2 1/2 cups stock and tomato paste; stir to blend. Reduce heat to very low and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors meld, 1 1/2 hrs. Season with salt and pepper.

Bring milk to a simmer in a small saucepan; gradually add to sauce. Cover sauce with lid slightly ajar and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally until milk is absorbed, about 45 minutes. Add more stock if needed.
