Ragu ala Bolognese

Holy Goodness!! This was really good. I. Mean. Reeeeeallly.  Reeeeallly.  GOOD! A definite keeper! It takes a few minutes to get all the goodies chopped and cooked then it just simmers for 2 hours...add to spaghetti noodles and Presto! A terrific dish!
"some" extra virgin olive oil
1/2 onion finely chopped
1 carrot finely chopped
1 celery stalk finely chopped
1/2 pound minced ground beef**I used turkey**
2 ounces finely minced prosciutto crudo or bacon**I used prosciutto**
1/2 cup red wine
1 large can crushed tomatoes**I used a good quality**
salt and pepper to taste
1 pound spaghetti

Heat olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat.  Saute onion, carrot and celery until soft. Add meat and prosciutto.  Pour in the red wine and cook until it is evaporated.  Add tomatoes and season with salt and pepper and simmer for 2 hours.  Cook spaghetti and and stir the sauce into the cooked pasta.  This is a great dish! Enjoy~
