Provided by Rachael Ray : Food Network

Total Time 1 hours 0 minutes

Cook Time 25 minutes

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 16

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 carrot, finely chopped
2 ribs celery from the heart with leafy tops, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
3 to 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 bay leaf
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 cup dry white wine, or medium bodied red
2 cups chicken stock
3/4 pound to 1 pound cooked shredded pork shoulder
Pinch ground cloves
2/3 cup milk
1 pound pappardelle pasta, cooked to al dente or 1 cup quick cooking polenta, cooked to package directions
A handful finely chopped parsley leaves
Shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano, for topping or for more tang use grated Pecorino Romano


  • Heat a Dutch oven or other heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the extra-virgin olive oil, 3 turns of the pan, then add the carrots, celery, onions and garlic. Stir in the bay leaf and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook the vegetables until soft, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the tomato paste and stir for 1 minute, then add the wine and cook for another minute. Stir in the stock and bring sauce to a simmer. Add the pork and season with a pinch of ground cloves. When the sauce returns to a simmer add the milk and reduce the heat to low. Let the sauce mellow while you bring the water to boil for the pasta or polenta. Sauce may be made ahead and reheated over medium-low heat. Add a splash of stock or water to thin the sauce, if necessary. Serve the sauce tossed with pasta ribbons or atop creamy bowls of polenta and garnish with lots of cheese and parsley.


Slow-Cooker Sunday Sauce Recipe - NYT Cooking image

Whether it’s called red sauce, sugo or gravy, you’ll find a big pot of the rich tomato sauce simmering all Sunday long in many Italian-American households. Every family has their own version, but this recipe includes shreddy pork shoulder, sausage and meatballs. This slow-cooker version lets you simmer it overnight or while you’re not home, and without splatters and stirring (though you can also make it on a stovetop). Once the sauce is done, coat pasta in the sauce, spoon the meats on top and serve it with a green salad, crusty bread and red wine. Sauce can be kept refrigerated for up to one week and frozen for up to three months.

Total Time 8 hours 30 minutes

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

2 (28-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
3 basil sprigs
2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 3-inch chunks
Kosher salt and black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more as needed
1 pound hot or sweet Italian sausage, or a combination
1 yellow onion, coarsely chopped
6 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
1/3 cup red wine
1 pound uncooked homemade or store-bought meatballs
1 1/2 pounds tubular or long noodles, like rigatoni or spaghetti
Grated Parmesan or pecorino, for serving


  • In a 6- to 8-quart slow cooker, add the crushed tomatoes and basil sprigs. Season the pork shoulder all over with salt and pepper.
  • In a large Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high. Working in batches if necessary, cook the pork until browned on two sides, 8 to 10 minutes total, adding more oil if the pan looks dry. Transfer pieces to the slow cooker as they finish. Add the sausages to the pot and cook until browned, 4 to 6 minutes total. Transfer to the slow cooker. 
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, if needed, and the onion and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until softened, 2 to 4 minutes. Add the red wine, stirring to scrape up the browned bits on the bottom of the pot, and cook until the wine is nearly evaporated, 2 to 4 minutes. Scrape the onion-wine mixture into the slow cooker, and stir to combine. Add the meatballs on top. (It’s OK if they’re sticking out of the sauce.) Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, until the pork shoulder falls apart when shredded with a fork. 
  • When you’re ready to eat, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook according to package instructions until al dente. While the pasta boils, slice the sausage and shred the pork shoulder on a cutting board, and leave it there. When the pasta is al dente, reserve ½ cup pasta water, then drain and return the pasta to the pot. Over medium heat, toss the pasta with enough sauce to coat (about 4 cups), adding pasta water as needed until the sauce clings to the pasta. (Some meatballs might end up in the pasta pot; that’s OK.) Return the sausage and pork shoulder to the remaining sauce in the slow cooker.
  • Divide pasta between bowls, then top with a bit of each meat. Pass the Parmesan and extra meat and sauce at the table.
