  • In a large cast-iron pot over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add ground chuck to the pan. Season with a sprinkle of salt. Use a hard spatula to break up meat into small pieces. The smaller the better. Once cooked through and lightly browned, transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Without cleaning, place the pot back on the stove over medium heat. Add in remaining tablespoon of butter, celery, carrot and onion. Cook until vegetables become fragrant and translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Return browned meat back to the pot. Add wine and cook until evaporated. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt and nutmeg. Next, stir in the crushed tomatoes and 2 bay leaves.
  • Bring everything to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Stir in milk. Stirring occassionally, simmer uncovered for 3 hours. If sauce begins to appear dry, stir in 1/2 cup of water. Once finished cooking, discard bay leaves and adjust salt seasoning, if necessary.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and place in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add sauce and toss to coat. Serve with a healthy sprinkling of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
